    ISTANBUL "If we were to follow the EU's example we would close our border to refugees'' said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, quoted by state Anadolu newsagency, accusing western allies of not accepting his proposal for a no-fly zone in Syria to shield refugees. "The same people who did not accept a no-fly zone and a zone free of terror in Syria are now wailing about the plight of refugees, they are hypocrites''.

    None of the migrants marooned at the Greek town of Idomeni will be sent back to Turkey, European Commission sources said Monday. Migrants having right to asylum who already are in Greece will qualify for the relocation plan. Economic migrants, since the 14 days foreseen for expulsion under the bilateral Greek-Turkey accord already have expired, will have to stay in Greece with the prospect of returning to their countries of origin when and where there will be bilateral accords, the sources said.
