France says EU sanctions against Turkey on the table

France s Europe minister said Friday that EU sanctions against Turkey over its anti-Kurd offensive in Syria are on the table , after European nations failed to convince the UN Security Council to condemn the military strikes by Ankara. Obviously it s on the table, Amelie de Montchalin told France Inter radio, saying potential reprisals over Turkey s incursion into northeast Syria would be debated during a European Council meeting next week. Turkey launched artillery and air strikes Wednesday against Kurdish People s Protection Units (YPG) militia after US President Donald Trump surprised Washington s allies in the fight against Islamic State militants by pulling out US troops along the Syria-Turkey border.
