Germany and France announced on Saturday that they would halt arms exports to Turkey over its military incursion into northeastern Syria.

“Against the background of the Turkish military offensive in northeastern Syria, the government will not issue any new permissions for any weapons that can be used by Turkey in Syria.” Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told Bild am Sonntag.

Shortly after, France also announced that it had suspended exports of “war materials” to Turkey, Euronews reports.

In a statement, Florence Parly, France’s Minister of Armed Forces wrote: “Pending the cessation of the Turkish offensive in North-East Syria, France has decided to suspend any plans to export to Turkey war materials that could be used in the context of this offensive. This decision is of immediate effect.”

France and Germany’s decision comes just days after the Netherlands, Norway, and Finland all decided to halt all arms exports to Turkey.

Various Arab foreign ministers have also issued statements of condemnation of Turkish aggression in the region, calling for the immediate withdrawal of its troops.

The Arab League has called on the UN Security Council to apply measures to force Turkey to halt its military incursion into Syria and to withdraw its troops from the Arab country immediately.

On Monday, a meeting of the EU’s foreign affairs committee will take place in Luxembourg to decide whether the bloc will take a coordinated approach to the issue.

In response to Europe’s condemnation of his government’s actions, Turkish President Recep Erdogan, for the second time, has threatened to flood Europe with 3.6 million migrants living in Turkey.

“We will open the gates and send 3.6 million refugees your way,” Erdogan said last Thursday during an address to Turkish lawmakers.

  1. Illegal immigrants of the cult to invade. That is indeed a threat. Likely most are like the ones we received who fled their homes in Syria, etc because they did not want to fight the invaders. This is a common thing in the middle east. Send em home not to EU. And EU needs to respond in the same way and send the bunch they did take in back. USA needs to do the same.

    Cultist do not assimilate. They want to change the culture they land in to suit their old Third World Sh*tholes.

  2. Turkey seems to have no problem with being blocked from buying NATO arms since they are considering buying Russian fighter jets.

    Further ! Sanctions are the proper response. Right now the Syrian regime of Bashar al Assad has amassed about 50 thousand troops from Russia, Iran and from their own defense forces all of whom are willing to defend Syrian sovereignty. Many Syrian Kurds are currently aligned with the Syrian Defense Forces of al Assad and many more will likely join the cause in exchange for some level of Kurdish self determination.

    We have a very small force left in Syria and it makes no sense to take on 15 thousand Turkish troops and potentially 50 thousand Syrian Defense Forces. It’s nonsense to continue military operations here.
