French Foreign Minister Calls on EU to Consider Turkish Arms Embargo Amid Syria Offensive.

Ankara launched "Operation Peaceful Spring" last Wednesday, vowing to drive ISIS terrorists and US-backed Kurdish fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) out of northern Syria, resulting in an escalation of tensions in the region.

The French Foreign Minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, stated on Monday that the European Union must condemn the Turkish military offensive in Syria and urged to adopt an arms embargo on Ankara.

"This offensive is going to cause serious humanitarian devastation", he said before a meeting with his EU counterparts in Luxembourg.

The minister also noted that the bloc should request to hold anti-ISIS coalition talks with Washington.

Paris and Berlin previously restricted arms sales to Turkey amid the operation in Syria, while US President Donald Trump warned he is working with Congress to establish "powerful sanctions" against Ankara. The Arab League has also condemned the Turkish government’s move.
