Erdogan Threatens Europe with Flood of Migrants

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has once again threatened that migrants will resume crossing into Europe if visa-free travel demands are not met.

It has been a turbulent week in Turkey after the resignation of Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, and the continued consolidation of power of President Erdogan may be putting the migrant deal between the European Union (EU) and Turkey in danger.

While this is not the first time that the Turkish president has threatened to scrap the deal, due to the resignation of the Prime Minister and a June deadline for visa-free travel looming it may be more serious this time.
