France and Germany halt arms exports to Turkey

France and Germany halt arms exports to Turkey - France and Germany have announced that they are temporarily halting arms exports to Turkey over the country's military action in northern Syria.

Berlin and Paris join fellow European countries the Netherlands, Norway, and Finland in their blockade, with the latter stating that the arms export ban concerned not only Turkey but also any other country involved in the fighting.

Turkey launched its military operation into northern Syria on Wednesday, days after the US announced that it was pulling troops from the area.
