Dutch plan to send back migrant ferry to Turkey

  • Under a Dutch plan that is aimed at solving the migrant crisis, refugees and migrants who are coming to the Greek islands would immediately be returned by ferry to Turkey. Media reports quoted Diederik Samsom, Labour party leader, as saying that under the proposal the EU would in return offer to take around 250,000 refugees that are currently in Turkey. Last year, more than 850,000 people entered the Greek islands from Turkey.
