UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson could be hosting a testy affair, with the Turkish president telling his French counterpart on Friday "you should check whether you are brain dead", in response to Macron's recent comments about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

"Our solemn commitment as enshrined in Article 5 of the Washington Treaty that an attack against one ally shall be considered an attack against us all", they said.

He noted that Turkish forces have attacked the Kurdish militia that backed the allies against the Islamic State in Syria, and he accused Ankara of working with "ISIS proxies".

Macron says leaders' "responsibility is to highlight ambiguities that could be damaging and to launch a real strategic debate".

Turkey has faced criticism among the allies at the London meeting and has threatened to impede a stronger defence policy for the Baltic states and the head-to-head was not on Trump's published agenda. President Donald Trump branded his remarks as "very disrespectful".

The memorandum asserts Turkey's rights in the Eastern Mediterranean in the face of unilateral drilling by the Greek Cypriot administration, clarifying that the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) also has rights to the resources in the area. "But if terrorist organizations against which we fight are not recognized by NATO's friends as terrorist groups, I am sorry but we will be against all the steps that will be taken" in defense towards Russian Federation, said Erdogan, explaining that he already discussed the issue in talks with Polish President Andrzej Duda.

"NATO is agile, NATO is active, NATO is adapting", NATO-Secretary Jens Stoltenberg said when asked by reporters whether the world's biggest security alliance is brain dead.
