The invitation was extended during a meeting last Friday between the two first ladies in Paris where Emine Erdogan accompanied President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on an official trip, said the source who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

The presidential source said Emine Erdogan told Macron about ongoing educational projects for vulnerable groups in Turkey.
The Rohingya issue was also discussed during the meeting and the French first lady praised Emine Erdogan for her visit to Myanmar in 2012.
