PARIS - French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian expressed concern on Tuesday about Turkey's military offensive in northern Syria and warned the government to show restraint in its operations against Kurdish forces in the region.

"I had the opportunity to tell my Turkish colleague... that this offensive worries us," Le Drian told reporters.
