Those seeking to test EU unity ‘will be disappointed’: von der Leyen | AFP

“Those who seek to test Europe’s unity will be disappointed. We will hold the line and our unity will prevail,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen says after visiting the border area with the Greek prime minister and chiefs of the European Council and European Parliament. The EU dispatched its highest officials to Turkey and Greece amid concern over a fresh migrant crisis and allegations that Ankara was trying to “blackmail” the bloc by opening its borders to thousands of refugees seeking to flee to Europe.
