President of the Greek Cypriot parliament Yannakis Omiru commented critically over a statement by European Council President Donald Tusk saying that Turkey constitutes a “best example in the world of how to treat refugees.”

In a written statement Omiru expressed his shock over the Tusk`s statement, adding that “it is a statement which constitutes an insult to the fundamental principles and values of the European Union.”

Moreover, Omiru said that the behaviour of European officials diminishes the value of the European vision as they prioritise interests with cynicism instead of EU fundamental principles and values.

Turkey has been conducting an ‘open door policy’ from the beginning of the Syrian crisis and housing 2.5 million refugees.
