Turkey won't take back migrants already on Greek islands: minister

Migrants wait at the side of the road after being detained by Turkish soldiers as they try to reach the Greek island of Lesbos from Dikili, western Turkey, on March 5, 2016Turkey will not take back migrants already on Greek islands under a deal proposed to European Union leaders at a crunch summit this week, Ankara’s EU affairs minister said Thursday. Volkan Bozkir was quoted by the Anatolia news agency as saying Turkey would take back “tens of thousands” of migrants, “not hundreds of thousands or millions”, and they would “not include the existing refugees on the Greek islands”. At talks in Brussels this week, Turkey surprised EU leaders by presenting a set of proposals to help solve the migrant crisis — the continent’s worst since World War II.
