Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
According to MSF, the EU has a shameful and deterrent policy to keep people in acute emergencies outside the EU. The decision to boycott European funds is effective immediately and applies to all projects worldwide.
The anger focuses on the deal which the EU concluded three months ago with Turkey. It states inter alia that the EU will contribute to having about three million Syrian refugees in Turkey. MSF sees it primarily as a reward for stopping by Turkey of refugees heading for Europe.
In addition, MSF fears a precedent. Kenya announced last month that it will close the largest refugee camp in the world and return the residents to Somalia. Kenya referred about this to the EU’s refugee policy, according to MSF.
Europe is slamming its doors shut to a growing and historic humanitarian crisis: here.
