Democratic nations must respect 'Rule of Law': Macron

French-President-Emmanuel-Macron-860-01

French President Emmanuel Macron has observed that all democracies must respect 'Rule of Law'.

He made this observation during a press briefing with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday. He was critical of the jailing of dozens of journalists in Turkey in recent months.

Both leaders had discussed a list of individual cases of jailed journalists during their talks. Reports say that Erdogan's government has also arrested tens of thousands of officials, academics and activists in the wake of a botched coup attempt in 2016, drawing criticism from rights advocates. According to the P24 press freedom group, there are 170 journalists behind bars in Turkey, most of whom were arrested under the state of emergency in place since the July 2016 coup attempt.
