France urges Turkey to stop bombing Kurdish zones in Syria

Xinhua News Agency | Mon,2016-02-15

France on Sunday urged Turkey to immediately halt shelling Kurdish militia in Syria, an offensive that could cast doubts to implement an already fragile ceasefire deal in the war-torn country, French presidential office the Elysee has announced.

Turkish artillery continued to bomb Kurdish areas in northern Syria for the second consecutive day on Sunday, after world powers agreed on Friday in Munich to "a limited cessation of hostilities" in Syria.

France "expresses concern at the continued deterioration of the situation in the region of Aleppo and northern Syria", the Elysee said in a press release.

France also asked Russia to stop air strikes supporting Syrian regime in Aleppo and stressed "the absolute priority" to implement Munich ceasefire accord, which is expected to take effect the end of this week.
