Turkey threatens EU to open its borders to migrants

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to throw open Turkey's borders to illegal migrants after the European Parliament voted to back a freeze in membership talks with Ankara.

"If you go any further, then the frontiers will be opened, bear that in mind," Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the European Union (EU) in a speech in Istanbul.

"Neither me nor my people will be affected by these dry threats. It wouldn't matter if all of you approved the European parliament vote," Reuters cited him as saying.

On Thursday, the European Parliament approved a non-binding resolution yesterday and said the talks freeze should last until Ankara's 'disproportionate measures' under the state of emergency are lifted.
