EU ministers vow 'close eye' on migrant deal abuses on Turkey visit

Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders meets with young refugees in the transit and registration camp near Gevgelija on February 14, 2016EU ministers visited Turkey on Sunday, urging the country to carefully implement a deal on returning migrants and warning they would be keeping a close eye out for potential abuses. A delegation led by Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders, whose country currently holds the European Union presidency, visited Istanbul nearly a week after Greece began shipping migrants back to Turkey under a highly controversial deal to halt mass migration into Europe. Rights activists have slammed the pact, arguing that Turkey is not a safe country for refugees, and raising concern that refugees would not be given their right to apply for asylum before being deported.
