Turkey gets thumbs-up from EU over treatment of refugees
EU officials led by German chancellor Angela Merkel have given Turkey a pass mark saying the new deal with the country to stop refugees and migrants from making dangerous journeys is working.
The delegation traveled to the Turkish-Syrian border in an effort to enforce the controversial refugee-swap deal.
“The new deal with Turkey to stop refugees and migrants from making dangerous journeys is working thanks to Turkey’s stance.” An EU official said from a refugee camp in southeastern Turkey on Saturday.
Merkel, accompanied by Donald Tusk, EU president, and Frans Timmermans, European Commission vice president, visited a camp in Nizip – near the Syrian border and about 40km east of Gaziantep – to inaugurate an EU-funded project in support of Syrian children and hold talks with Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkish prime minister.
