In Greece the Parliament ratified the agreement. On the same day, Amnesty International accuses Turkey of being to send Syrian refugees back to their war-ravaged country.

The first expulsions, the territory of the community begin next week.

"It is necessary that the Turkish Government stop this practice blatantly unlawful and inhumane. There is no room for any practice to resend any individual to a conflict zone. In turn, the European Union must encourage Turkey to stop this and certainly cannot even think about resend back the Syrians w hen there is a real risk, in Turkey, they are sent back to Syria, "warns John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International.
