U.S. Sends the Wrong Message to Turkey
The European Union’s current plan to stop the irregular flow of migrants and refugees to Europe, which came into effect on March 20, involves an agreement with Turkey to take back all people arriving on the Greek islands and all those intercepted in Turkish waters. In announcing the agreement, E.U. leaders have welcomed NATO's engagement in patrolling the Aegean Sea. As NATO includes non-E.U. members, including the United States and Turkey, it is able to operate in Turkish waters, unlike Frontex, the E.U. border agency.
