Relying on Turkey ‘leads to blackmail’, Tusk says

Making deals with dodgy authoritarian governments, presents dangers – it goes without saying. While EU governments bicker and lose ground to populists, we are dropping the ball on fundamental policies like defence of EU borders. The Russian-populist sabotage of the Union is succeeding when we are so distracted by the noise they make, that we neglect essential actions and policies for our safety and well-being.

EU Council head Tusk said that until the EU regains control of its own borders, countries such as Turkey will be “tempted” to try to extort political concessions.
