Turkish President warned EU about millions of refugees. At the same time, the UN has already recorded the flow of people leaving Idlib. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that millions of refugees will soon move to the borders of the European Union, RIA Novosti reports. “The period of Turkey’s unilateral self-sacrifice has come to an end ... They call and say: close the borders. I told them: it’s done. The West will have to take the share of the burden for refugees. Today we will meet with the Prime Minister of Bulgaria, tomorrow I’ll talk with Merkel,” Erdogan said. He did not rule out holding summits on Syria with the participation of the heads of four to five states. At the same time, UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said that the flow of people leaving Syrian Idlib has increased in recent days. “We know that about 900 thousand people have been displaced in the province of Idlib in the north of the country (Syria - ed.) over the past few months, but in the past few days this has accelerated,” Grandi said. As you know, the Turkish-backed rebels recaptured Seracib on February 27. They controlled the city only several days. Note that the first city that was retaken by the rebels from the Assad army during the counterattack was Nairab in the north-west of Idlib.
