Amnesty International had reported the Turkish deportations to Afghanistan and Syria without for people to be able to apply for asylum. Turkey is negotiating readmission agreements with 14 countries, including Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, in order to deport them more conveniently.

The agreement between the EU and Turkey, whose application began on March 20, provides that for each Syrian returned from Greece to Turkey a Syrian refugee in Turkey is reinstalled to Europe. It sais nothing about the other nationalities whose citizens will be returned from Greece to Turkey. It is now giving itself the means to return them to their country of origin.
