arrested to be released and greater democratic freedoms. now turkey is preparing to host a summit with russia and iran backs tweek to discuss syria's ongoing civil war so he's taken in millions of syrian refugees that he's seeking to prevent and have been nuked hostilities might drive even more people across the border european countries are also concerned very fair that acro will pull out of a deal with the a you allowed by kurds to cross the sea to grace. turkish troops fire warning shots and tear gas at the border with syria. they're trying to prevent syrian protesters from storming across the frontier. the demonstrators are demanding protection from an offensive by the syrian government on the last rebel stronghold of. this is a warning that if nothing is done to help them we are coming to turkey and europe
7:04 pm
a lump of. this is added once fear that the destruction and the death in a globe will send tens of thousands more syrian refugees towards his country joining the nearly $4000000.00 who've already fled the carnage he says this will have to matter consequences not just for turkey but for europe too. the couple that are struggling we will be forced to open the gates. of the large world building that we will be forced to open the gates you know there's if you're going to provide support then provide support if you're not sorry everyone sees this area in northern syria as one solution to any new refugee crisis turkish and american troops are already patrolling here ahead of the establishment of what's being called a safe zone for the resettlement of up to 1000000 syrian refugees but everyone says the international community and europe in particular i'm not offering enough
7:05 pm
support for the plan. he also accuses the e.u. of failing to honor its commitments in a landmark 2016 refugee deal with turkey the e.u. offered ankara 6000000000 euros to stop the flow of migrants into europe in 2015 but as one says he's received barely half of the money europe says it's willing to have a discussion without $1.00 but greece which takes in most of the new arrivals says he must 1st change his tone. the migration issue is a european matter it is not a bilateral issue and mr erdogan must understand that he cannot threaten greece and europe in an attempt to secure more resources to handle the refugee issue lover getting it will be. met with more migrants reaching greek shows in august 2900 minutes any other time in the last 3 years athens also knows the dissolution needs to be found. let's talk about solutions and the how big
7:06 pm
a problem this is with get out the canal sees that director of the european stability initiative is one of the architects of the migration deal between turkey and europe they're welcome to d.w. how seriously should the e.u. take mr out of one's threats when on the one hand we've seen turkey issues such statements regularly for more than 3 years we must remember this agreement is based on a turkish proposal the turks made this offer to the german chancellor and the e.u. in march 2016 and it is in turkey's interest that it works but at the same time we have seen growing pressure domestic debate in turkey that are too many syrians and the numbers then increasing so i think it's mr sending a message to the e.u. to keep helping him to his public that he sees their concerns and when he says that the e.u. is not up holding its end of the deal is that sure. when what the e.u.
7:07 pm
is offered is 6000000000 euros which is the largest amount of help the us ever given to a 3rd country to deal with refugees and yet turkey is hosting the largest number of refugees in the world 3600000 syrians alone and in the last year this number has increased by 200 thousands of which more than 100000 were the children of syrian refugees born in turkey so that the pressure in turkey is increasing the number is increasing and it's clear that you need to in its own interest to keep helping but when when mr says the money has not arrived no that's not true that's not true and in fact this is the one aspect of the deal that has worked what hasn't worked is not what the u.s. done in turkey but what the e.u. and greece have promised to do in the greek islands for the conditions are terrible but this is not a failure of tech it is a failure of the e.u. so how could this be made better then how could the flow of refugees into europe
7:08 pm
better be controlled when you have 3 things that you should really do urgently i mean one each of give a clear signal to turkey that it's prepared to keep supporting that the syrians in turkey so to mean more money on top of the present deal or just saying well it means the 6000000000 have been meant to be spent by the end of 2020 it's clear that the number of syrians in turkey not only is not going to be small of a bigger ok so the e.u. has an interest in helping syrians in turkey with social support education health care in turkey but secondly it needs to work on the greek islands the greeks have promised this was part of the deal to process quickly the applications of anyone coming in to return those to turkey who are safe in turkey but the returns are at their lowest level in 3 is because the greek asylum system isn't able to process them this is not going to be helped by blaming greece germany france and other countries into. put together
7:09 pm
a credible plan send the resources and work with greece on dealing with this which brings our next for the rich which is that athens is frustrated by the lack of burden sharing but over the last 3 years all we have seen from brussels is some people saying we should all do more and some people say yeah you do do you do what you like we don't want them there is no consensus and the rules aren't working so when next well i think we need to be really realistic it's not going to be a solution for the whole of the european union we have some member states that have no refugees arriving but have built governments have built their political strategy on defending their countries of an alleged mess invasion which is not happening it's the countries that are really concerned by this germany the netherlands france sweden they need to get together they need to help greece they have the expertise they know how to process asylum claims because they've done it in the last few
7:10 pm
years they need to work with the new greek government which i think genuinely wants to have a solution and they need to prove and this is what's at stake here they need to prove that you can process the side and claims credibly within a few weeks returned those who don't need protection in the e.u. turkey is ready to take them and then find a solution for the others which does not leave greece alone cannot strome the european stability initiative and so much for joining us thank you. now let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world new zealand's prime minister just in the house introduced new legislation to further tighten the country's gun laws 51 people were killed in mass shootings at 2 mosques in christ 6 months ago a ban on military style rifles followed immediately these latest models will increase penalties for violations and make it easier to track file. activists at london fashion week and thousands cells in slide on friday the protest against.
