Daily Sabah: Bulgaria, Greece Panic amid Turkey-EU Spat
Panic has been stirred up among Turkey's neighbors, Bulgaria and Greece, over the recent exchange of ultimatums between Turkey and the European Union, Daily Sabah argues.
It makes a reference to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's comments to the EU last week: "We will open the borders if you push any farther."
"Prior to the deal, Bulgaria and Greece had to deal with a huge migrant influx. Nowadays, the Turkish-EU migrant deal prevents thousands of migrant from crossing the Aegean Sea with the hopes of reaching EU borders," a Daily Sabah piece concludes about the deal signed on March 18.
Bulgarian and Greek sources are quoted as drawing up nightmare scenarios in case "Turkey opens border gates" in line with Erdoğan's words.
