‘Extremely critical’: Austria slams ‘breakthrough’ EU-Turkey refugee deal

Austria’s interior minister signaled its opposition towards a mooted but not yet finalized EU-Turkey refugee deal. The minister says she is “extremely critical” of the agreement, citing the situation with freedom of speech in Turkey.

“I am extremely critical. I am seriously wondering whether we are taking ourselves and our values seriously or if we are throwing them overboard,” Johanna Mikl-Leitner told ORF public radio on Thursday.
