All 28 EU countries accused Turkey of causing “unacceptable human suffering” and “undermining” the fight against ISIS.

They have agreed amongst themselves to stop all arms exports to the country until it halts its military operations.

Mr Macron said the three leaders will try to persuade Ankara to adopt “more reasonable positions” on Syria.

He fumed: “What has been going on for several days in the region is a serious mistake by the West and NATO. What the Turks are trying to do is madness.”

The EU also lashed out at a five-day ceasefire brokered by Donald Trump.

Brussels boss Donald Tusk raged: “In fact it’s not a ceasefire, it’s a demand of capitulation for the Kurds.”

Up to 300,000 people have been displaced from their homes since the Turkish offensive against Kurdish forces in northern Syria began on October 9.

Ankara says it is trying to create a “safe zone” just the other side of its border in which to resettle two million Syrian refugees.
