"In expectation of the end of this offensive, France has decided to suspend all plans to export to Turkey weapons that could be used in this offensive. This decision is with immediate effect," a joint statement from the foreign and defense ministries said, as reported by Reuters.

It said that European Union foreign ministers would coordinate their position on Monday at a meeting in Luxembourg.
