Speech at the plenary session during the debate about the Greek-Turkish border

With humanity or without humanity, with or without understanding of the situation, we have just evoked a drama that is nothing compared to what will happen in a few weeks or a few months at the most, when the compromise between Russia and Turkey breaks down. At that point, one million, two million, three million people will want to cross into Turkey, and the situation will become totally untenable. We must, ladies and gentlemen, we, the European countries, prepare ourselves, because the Union as such cannot do it, but we, the Member States can, we must prepare ourselves to organise a no-fly zone over Idlib to protect its people, avoid a disaster, and march towards a peace agreement.
