European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday called Turkey to show restraint and stop its military operation in northeast Syria, reports citing Reuters.

“Turkey has security concerns at its border with Syria, that we must understand. However, I call on Turkey, as well as other actors, to act with restraint,” Juncker told EU parliament.

“If the plan involves the creation of a so-called safe zone, don’t expect the EU to pay for any of it.”
