“We have prepared in the foreign policy council in case the fighting in the northeast of Syria is continued by the Turkish army,” RIA Novosti quoted the minister as saying.

According to him, we are talking about "arms exports, economic sanctions."

“But I think it makes sense to remember that Turkey’s membership in NATO will continue in the future. It’s strategically wrong to push Turkey out of NATO into the arms of Russia or China, ”added Maas.

In mid-October, the leader of the French National Unification Party, Marine Le Pen, called for the suspension of Turkey’s NATO membership due to a military operation in Syria.

Later, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg noted that the alliance notes progress in stabilizing the situation in northern Syria.
