KOCIJANCIC: EU CUTS MONETARY AID IF REFUGEES DON'T STAY IN TURKEY


11/10/2019




Serhat Tunar -TDO- Addressing reporters in Brussels, European Commission spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said the financial assistance provided to Turkey under the asylum seeker agreement is for Syrian refugees to be kept in the country, and that it would be cut off if refugees are placed in a safe zone and violated international criteria.

Noting the importance of meeting the criteria set by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Kocijancic said Turkey's military intervention in Syria would increase civilian casualties, worsen the situation, and therefore focus on a political solution.

Turkey should not distance itself from the European Union's foreign policy, a spokesman for the European Commission said, adding that the latest development was very serious so the issue of sanctions would be discussed at a meeting of European foreign ministers in Luxembourg on Monday.
