Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says he told his French counterpart Macron that cement giant Lafarge supports terror groups in northern Syria.
Lafarge has accepted to pay more than $777.8 million after pleading guilty to US charges of providing material support to two designated terrorist groups, including Daesh.
As part of its guilty plea, French cement maker Lafarge-Holcim has acknowledged that it paid nearly $12.8 million to armed groups, including Daesh terror organisation in Syria, and agreed to pay a fine to the US Justice Department.
French cement company Lafarge paid millions of dollars to the Daesh terror group to secure its operations in northern Syria, says Abdulkadir Karakelle, director of "The Factory" documentary.
A French appeals court confirms a charge of complicity in crimes against humanity against the cement group Lafarge over alleged payoffs to the Daesh terror group during Syria's civil war.
Turkey is expected to see 10 percent growth in 2021 or more and the country will post surplus on current account in 2022, says President Erdogan.
The cement giant Lafarge constantly informed the French intelligence agencies about its ties with the Daesh terrorist organisation, according to documents obtained by Anadolu Agency.
French foreign policy failures in Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Syria have greatly diminished its role in the Middle East.
