Macron Says Turkey Has Plans to Try and Sway French Elections

President Emmanuel Macron expressed concern that Turkey will attempt to influence upcoming French elections.
     “The threats aren’t veiled, so I think that we must be very lucid,” Macron said on Tuesday in an interview with France 5 television.
     Macron didn’t explain how Turkey might attempt to interfere with French elections — or whether he was referring to regional elections in June, the presidential ballot in 2022, or both. He said only that Turkey would be “playing on public opinion.” It was likely a reference to its hold over parts of the Turkish diaspora via schools, mosques and other organizations.
