EU sanctions on Turkey 'on table' - French official

The European Council will debate next week punitive measures against Turkey over its military operation in Syria, French State Secretary for European Affairs Amelie de Montchalin said on Friday.

"We will not remain powerless when faced with a situation that is shocking for civilians, the free Syrian forces and the stability of the region," the official added.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened yesterday to "open doors" to Europe for Syrian refugees if Brussels criticizes its offensive that started on Wednesday.
