Press Statement: Summit of Isolation
Brussels, 8th of March 2016
This is a summit of isolation. The European leaders want to effectively close down the borders for refugees. It is inhumane and illegal that every Syrian refugee who reached the Greek coasts is going to be deported to Turkey. The European leaders are imminent on breaking internationally affirmed rights of refugees.
The European leaders are pretending humanity, where there is none. It is a sham that for every deported Syrian refugee another Syrian refugees will be legally relocated in the EU as part of the so-called resettlement program. The EU resettlement program is currently limited to 20,000 refugees. The EU Heads of State and Government reaffirmed yesterday that it should not be extended.
