Cyprus’ foreign minister says Turkey must take back economic migrants who aren’t entitled to international protection.

Ioannis Kasoulides says “it is obvious” that “more than 50 percent” of migrants now on European soil aren’t from war-torn Syria whose citizens need such protection.

Kasoulides said after talks with his Bosnian counterpart Monday that these economic migrants “found an easy route to fly to Turkey” from where they can enter Greece in hopes of reaching Germany and other wealthy northern European countries.

European Union leaders on Monday will press Turkey to do more to stop migrants from entering Europe and to shore up support for Greece, where thousands of people are stranded.
