Turkey Has EU by the Throat: No Funding? Prepare to Accept ‘All Refugees’!

RIGA (Sputnik) — Turkey is blackmailing the European Union by asking for funding to address the refugee crisis, Member of the European Parliament Iveta Grigule said Wednesday.

“Turkey is engaged in blackmail: give us money and we will help refugees, give us money, and we will detain them. The EU is cornered. If it refuses to give money, Turkey will let all refugees in here,” Grigule told the Baltkom radio in an interview.

According to Grigule, the European Commission is the only EU body capable of improving the situation with refugee arrivals but it fails to cope with its duties.
