Source: The Left “The conditions in the refugee camps in the Greek islands are desolate. Greece must not be left alone and needs immediate support. However, it will only be sustainable if the federal government finally tackles the causes of flight. As an immediate measure, the sanctions against Syria must be lifted and reconstruction supported, “explains Sevim Dagdelen, vice-chair of the DIE LINKE parliamentary group. Dagdelen continued: “The refugee crisis can not be answered with a new billion check for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the extension of the EU-Turkey deal, but only politically. Chancellor Angela Merkel and the EU have made themselves blackmailable with the EU-Turkey deal. The conditions for the local people were not improved. Instead of repeatedly threatening to fight the causes of flight, the Federal Government aggravates the living conditions on the ground by the inhuman sanctions against Syria and forces more and more people to flee. Mogels partner Erdogan is part of the problem in the refugee question and not the solution. With his repressive domestic policy and aggressive foreign policy, he is a personified cause of flight and not a refugee helper. For years, the despot has supported Islamist terrorist countries in Syria and fueled the war in the neighboring country. Hundreds of thousands of Kurds, Yazidis and Christians have been forced to flee following the invasion of German tanks by the Turkish army in the region of Afrin in northern Syria. Erdogan is now threatening a new invasion – the Federal Government still cheerfully approves weapons deliveries to the despot. It is this false policy that makes for overcrowded refugee camps in Greece. “
