Eu Turkey Agreements

By September 19, 2021 Uncategorized No Comments

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is advocating an extension of the EU-Turkey pact and will likely use the six-month presidency as leverage for this. As of September 2017, only 5% of non-Syrians returning from Greece could apply for asylum in Turkey – and only two of them have been granted refugee status. By January 2019, more than two-thirds of non-Syrians returning from Greece had been deported to their home countries, which included fragile states and countries in conflict.
