EU-Turkey: Merkel, Tusk and Timmermans Must Not Close their Eyes to Catalogue of Human Rights Abuses against Refugees

WASHINGTON - The high-level European delegation travelling to Turkey on Saturday must address the catalogue of human rights abuses faced by refugees in the country, not sweep them under the carpet, said Amnesty International today.

Chancellor Angela Merkel, along with European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans, will visit Gaziantep in southern Turkey.
