MOSCOW (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — Earlier in the day, German Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Schaefer said the EU-Turkish agreement on refugee swaps must be implemented despite the forthcoming resignation of Davutoglu.
"The deal between Turkey and the European Union was a false deal. They [the European Union] hanged on Turkey and they were manipulated by the Turkish policy. I don’t think it [the resignation of Davutoglu] will harm the deal between them because despite they [the EU] see the refugee crisis against them, the European Union has other aims [corresponding with Turkey’s aims] in the Middle East regarding oil and gas," Uzun said.
According to the deal with the European Union reached in March, Turkey has pledged to take back all undocumented migrants arriving in EU countries through its territory. In exchange, the European Union will accept approved Syrian refugees accommodated in Turkey on a one-for-one basis, accelerate the Turkish EU accession bid and introduce a visa-free regime between Turkey and Europe.
