Tusk says EU stands firm on keeping Balkan migrant routes closed

The European Union is determined to stick to a deal with Turkey to stem the flow of undocumented migrants into the bloc, European Council President Donald Tusk said Tuesday.


Tusk, who met Bulgaria's President Rumen Radev, welcomed Sofia's efforts to boost security on its southeastern border with Turkey to prevent migrants from crossing. He said Brussels would provide additional financing if the situation worsened.

"We are determined to keep routes of illegal migration in this region closed," Tusk told reporters. "We remain committed to the full implementation of the EU-Turkey statement.

"The EU is honoring its commitments, just like we expect Turkey to continue keeping its part of the deal."
