EU deal with Turkey makes Europe more vulnerable to terror attacks
Terrorists are more likely to attack European countries as a result of a controversial deal to allow Turkish citizens to travel across the continent without visas, EU leaders have admitted.The deal was struck to stop the flow of migrants from Turkey into Greece before entering Europe. It looks like a bad deal that will put more Europeans at risk.
Foreign terrorists and organised criminals are “expected” to seek Turkish passports to reach continental Europe “as soon as” the visa waiver program comes into force, a European Commission report said.
The disclosure came as Sir Richard Dearlove, the former head of MI6, warned that the decision to give Turkey visa-free travel is “perverse” and compared it to “storing gasoline next to the fire”.
Sir Richard also said that the EU will face a "populist uprising" if it fails to control migration.
