“If the European Union will not a decision, we will begin to send refugees back to Europe”, – said the adviser to Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

It is worth noting that just a week ago the European Commission recommended the EU Council and the European Parliament to cancel the visa regime with Turkey.

In March of this year, the government of Turkey and the EU signed an agreement under which Turkey agreed to host on its territory of refugees penetrated into the territory of the European Union. In return, Brussels has promised Ankara financial aid and the abolition of visas for Turkish citizens.

At the beginning of current week it became known that the EU has started to consider alternative solutions to the migration issue in the case, if a deal on refugees with Turkey will be disrupted.
