Erdogan says Turkey will keep border open, slams ‘Nazi’ tactics


President Tayyip Erdogan said, on Wednesday, that Turkey will keep its border open for migrants trying to travel to Europe until the European Union (EU) meets Ankara’s expectations over a 2016 migration deal.

“There is no difference between those images on the Greece border and what the Nazis did,” he said.

“Until all expectations are met in a concrete way, we will continue our current practice at our borders,” Erdogan said, referring to aspirations including an update of Turkey’s customs union with the bloc, a revival of its stalled EU accession process and financial aid.
