Vowing to keep border open, Turkey's Erdogan compares Greeks to Nazis

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday he would keep Turkey’s border open for refugees until the EU had met all his demands, while comparing Greece’s response to the crisis to the Nazis.

“Until all Turkey’s expectations, including free movement ... updating of the customs union and financial assistance, are tangibly met, we will continue the practice on our borders,” he said in a televised speech.

Turkey’s decision at the end of February to re-open its border for refugees sparked a row with Brussels, as well as harsh exchanges with Greece.

Greece has tear-gassed thousands of migrants trying to break through and been accused of beating and stripping migrants of their belongings if they made it across the border.

“There is no difference between what the Nazis did and those images from the Greek border,” Erdogan said.
