Erdogan calls on Turks not to buy French goods

    ANKARA, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan called on Monday for Turks never to buy French goods, as he continued his sharp criticism of French leader Emmanuel Macron over his attitude towards Muslims.

    Erdogan said on Saturday Macron had a problem with Muslims and needed mental checks - a rebuke that caused France to recall its ambassador from Ankara. He made similar comments the next day and again on Monday in a speech in Ankara. (Reporting by Tuvan Gumrukcu and Ece Toksabay Writing by Daren Butler Editing by Dominic Evans)
