France has called on Arab countries to stop the boycott of French goods. The call was made by the French Foreign Ministry in a statement released on Sunday. Qatar-based Reuters reported this in a report.
The statement said that some countries in the Middle East have recently called for a boycott of French products, particularly food products. In addition, protests have been called against France over the publication of the satirical cartoons of the Prophet (pbuh). These calls of exclusion are unfounded. These should be stopped immediately. Attacks on extremist minority groups continue against our country; Which should stop.
France has been mired in controversies since the murder of a history teacher by a Muslim extremist over a caricature of Prophet Muhammad. In this event, the country’s President Emmanuel Macron announced the continuation of the publication of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). His announcement provoked a strong reaction in the Muslim world. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that Macron needed mental treatment for such an attitude towards Islam. Muslim countries are calling for a boycott of French goods.
Social media activists are showing people how to identify French products in different countries. French products have already been removed from shelves in various markets in Qatar and Kuwait in response to boycott calls. Twitter hashtags are becoming popular in other countries of the region, including Saudi Arabia, calling for a boycott of French products. In such a situation France on Sunday issued an official statement calling for an end to the boycott of French goods.
