EU looks for Turkish help
TURKEY has warned Brussels that it will not act as “border guard” for the EU amid fears of a migration crisis fuelled by Afghan refugees.
Josep Borrell, EU foreign policy chief, said: “We need to ensure that the political situation created in Afghanistan by the return of the Taliban does not lead to a large scale migratory movement towards Europe.”
He added: “A humanitarian crisis must be prevented. Here, Turkey will play a very important role.”
But Ankara, which is building a 150-mile wall on its border with Iran, said it was not willing to act as “the border guard or freebee camp of the EU”.
