A Greek member of the European Parliament tore apart a paper Turkish flag during debates on the migration crisis on Wednesday. Ionannis Lagos blamed Ankara for the worsening situation.
«Let's give back to the Greek people the rights that they'd lost, the people who've lost their homeland. And Turkey seems to get away with whatever it likes. We've got streams of people coming into my country... Еще,» said Lagos.
The chairperson of the session called such behaviour unacceptable.
On Thursday, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu demanded the European Parliament take action against Lagos calling him a 'racist' and a 'clown.'
