ANKARA: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned European Union for severe reaction over ignoring EU-Turkey Refugees pact.

 

He claimed that Turkey will cancel the agreement if EU fails to fulfill the agreement.

 

Erdogan said “There are precise conditions. If the European Union does not take the necessary steps, then Turkey will not implement the agreement.”

 

Turkey signed a deal with EU on March 18 to take back migrants who entered illegally in Greece and promised to reduce flow of migrants.

 

Turkey will receive an amount of $6.6 billion and discount in EU membership that will enable Turkish citizens to visa-free travel to Europe.

 

The agreement was criticized by Human Rights Organizations including Amnesty International which claimed that Turkey cannot be considered as a safe country for refugees.

 

A complaint also launched in court against acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy for “crimes against humanity” by a Spanish far-left party.
