PARIS (Reuters) - The European Union must stand firm against Turkey and this could mean possible sanctions, junior European Affairs Minister Clement Beaune said on Thursday.

"In the short-term there must be signals of resolve. We will see if there are sanctions," he said on broadcaster France 2 television.

EU leaders are set to meet in Brussels on Thursday for two days of discussions notably on tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean and relations with Turkey.
