Paris, France – Imperialist France deploys “battle ready” aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle to East Mediterranean.
Imperialist France is deploying the flagship of its Navy, the nuclear-powered surface vessel, aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle to the eastern Mediterranean Sea.
The deployment comes in the wake of Turkey’s war threats. The aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle is expected to arrive in the area soon. The aircraft carrier is coming to the area with a full military load.
The Charles de Gaulle will be accompanied by an unknown number of ships and submarines of the French Navy.
According to the French sources, the Charles de Gaulle has departed from the port of Toulon with the aircraft carrier described as being “battle ready”.
The aircraft carrier’s combat load reportedly includes a number of Rafale fighter jets, maximum-range missiles, anti-submarine arsenal, as well as advanced electronic tracking, targeting and electronic interception systems.
French Defense Minister Florance Parly confirmed that the deployment is due early September in Eastern Mediterranean.
The deployment of the French navy in the Eastern Mediterranean follows recent statements by French President Emmanuel Macron that “Turkey understands only actions.”
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan directly threatened Greece and France on Monday, saying that they will pay a heavy price.”
“Those who think they drew a red line in the Eastern Mediterranean are challenging our country’s resolute stance,” Turkey’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
On Friday, Macron said he had adopted a “red-line policy” in the region backing Greece against Turkey over the exploration of energy resources, wrote Turkish media.
Colonialist France’s aircraft carrier has no chance at life
Retired Admiral Cem Gürdeniz made striking statements about the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier that France had sent to the Eastern Mediterranean. Gürdeniz said that the Turkish people should not exaggerate the sending of this ship to the region, saying: “this ship will come, that it will also carry out a military operation to Turkey. I’m not giving it a chance at life. I’m saying it so clearly.” said.
As tensions with Greece continue in the eastern Mediterranean, France has taken an unsurprising step. Charles de Gaulle, known as the French army’s ‘most powerful weapon’ in the Navy, has announced that the aircraft carrier is on its way to the Eastern Mediterranean, trying to regain its lost colonial spirit. After France’s scandalous attempt, Turkey has taken steps in a row. After President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s’ we will not back down from our rights ‘ messages, Turkey announced new Navtex and announced that joint exercises will be held with the TRNC in the Eastern Mediterranean starting tomorrow.
Can France and Turkey face off beyond Greece?
Gürdeniz was asked on France’s sending of the aircraft carrier to the Eastern Mediterranean “what does it mean for this ship to approach this region? Will France direct its ship directly to prevent or attack the Turkish Armed Forces when there is an accident, conflict between Turkey and Greece? Can France and Turkey face off beyond Greece? Is there such a risk?” he gave remarkable answers to his questions.
“I’m not giving it a chance at life”
Gürdeniz, who said that France’s sending this ship could only be a message to the poor Greek people and Mitsotakis, said: “Can you imagine now? The entire Republic of Turkey, which has a sovereignty area of 85 million people, has 300-odd fighter jets. We’re talking about a tiny Mediterranean as much as 1.7 percent of the world’s oceans. We’re talking about the Eastern Mediterranean about half a percent of it. This ship will also carry out a military operation to Turkey. I’m not giving it a chance at life. I’m saying it so clearly. Don’t let the Turkish people make a big deal out of it. It doesn’t matter in terms of technical and military strategy. It’s got 40 planes. If it wants, it may make a port visit in Marmaris. So I don’t take it seriously,” he said.
