Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday visits Paris for talks with French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, seeking to start the New Year by warming relations with the European Union after a torrid 2017 .Macron will host Erdogan at the Elysee Palace with talks expected to range from Syria to trade ties, and the French side is also expected to sound concern over the human rights situation in Turkey.Hosting Erdogan in Paris gives Macron -- who since his election in May last year has sought a new prominence for France on the European and world stages -- another high-profile and potentially sensitive guest.Jabbour said that Ankara welcomed Macron's accession to power, seeing him as a leader with a pragmatic foreign policy while the French president wanted a new relationship with Turkey based on mutual interests.
