Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened Europe Friday with another three million Syrian refugees if the European Union halts talks with Turkey over membership.
The EU parliament proposed halting membership talks with Turkey Thursday over Turkey’s response to a failed July coup. Turkey imprisoned or laid off tens of thousands of former government workers in a full scale purge after elements of the Turkish military tried to seize power.
Erdogan’s coup response was called “repressive” and “disproportionate.” Erdogan immediately responded, “We are the ones who feed 3m-3.5m refugees in this country,” threatening “you have betrayed your promises. If you go any further those border gates will be opened.”
