Cyprus overwhelmed, accuses Turkey of creating a new migration route.
No kidding…and the EU is paying Erdogan very well for all of this.
Erdogan has no respect for the EU…and the EU deserves no respect unless it starts standing up for itself, instead of being held hostage by soft Eurocrats and cultural Marxists at the Council of Europe.
Cyprus said it has had the highest proportion of asylum applications in the EU for four consecutive years. About four percent of Cyprus’ population is currently made up of asylum seekers — a number that is more than four times as high as the EU average.
The Cypriot foreign and interior ministry announced in a joint statement that “the overwhelming majority of migration flows originated from Turkey, a country that fails to implement all agreements regarding migration towards Cyprus…In fact, Turkey’s stance has led to the creation, rather than prevention, of a new migration route in the eastern Mediterranean, which disproportionally burdens Cyprus, and places enormous strain on the national asylum system.”
Why are they surprised and why do they refuse to defend borders by denying entry? At some point, self-preservation must become an urgent priority; one cannot expect survival or preserve its culture if one is not willing to fight for it.
Why do EU states allow themselves to be abused by Erdogan, the smugglers, and the illegals themselves…and then complain about it to Brussels?
The EU will be of no help. Cyprus needs to figure this out on its own or they can surrender.
No entry, No Way….they are Erdogan’s migrants.
