Before meeting with Erdogan ... Europe calls on Turkey to take refugees away from Greek borders

European Commission President Ursula von der Line called on Turkey to move migrants and refugees away from the Greek border, before meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a press conference ahead of the upcoming meeting today with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Turkey should move the refugees away from the Greek borders and added, "reaching a solution to this situation requires easing the pressure on the borders."

Von der Leyen indicated that there is also an immediate need to ensure asylum, support Turkey and Greece, and transport people, especially minors, stranded on the Greek islands of Europe.

Today, Erdogan will head to Brussels for talks with European Union officials, where he will meet European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to discuss the 2016 agreement, and Erdogan's office said that he is also scheduled to meet the President of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg.

Through the refugee card, Turkey is trying to pressure the European Union and use it as a political card in which European countries are threatened, as the European Union foreign ministers accused Turkey of exploiting the desperation of immigrants "for political purposes."
