Edirne, Turkey – Turkey condemns Greek soldiers ‘ crackdown on migrants at Edirne border. Turkey has condemned the violence of Greek soldiers have inflicted on migrants. “Elements of Greece continue their inhumane approach to migrants.
“We condemn the Greek soldiers beating migrants at Edirne border, confiscating their money, passports and even shoes and pushing them back from the border line. The European Union should not allow these inhumane practices at its borders. This is a violation of human rights, not Border Protection. With such a Border Protection Mission, it is impossible to protect borders and talk about human rights and human values on the other hand. Our nation has always been called the refuge of the oppressed, and this is one of our greatest sources of pride. Congratulations to our soldiers who rescued 29 migrants, including women and children.”
