Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini thinks the result of the EU-Turkey summit is a definition of policy rather than a breakthrough. « A small step ahead but we still have a long way to go, » Soini said in the Huomenta Suomi morning TV show. The biggest problem in EU’s refugee policy has been the implementation of decisions. Minister Soini thinks that the relocation of 160,000 refugees has been a complete failure. A total of 500 – 600 refugees have been relocated. Finland wants to stop the flow of refugees. Minister Soini thinks that the original causes of the problem should be affected, such as human trafficking. He adds that EU countries must see to that Turkey implements the agreed measures.
