The treatment that Turkey is planning to offer to the non-Syrian migrants who will be relocated remains vague. Reuters claims that it is aware of an internal Commission report which states that there are measures to be taken until Monday, April 4 in order for the scheduled "premiere" of the relocation program to take place.
The internal report notes that among the incomplete issues there are the necessary changes in Greek and Turkish law as well as further clarifications and arrangements on points which deal with the transportation and stay of the relocated migrants. Particular mention is made for those who are do not originate from Syria.
Declaration of Turkey as a Safe Country
Further on, the report calls for the members of the EU to issue public statements where they will be declaring Turkey to be a safe country. This will provide legal grounds for the legalization of the relocations.
The Turkish plans are that those who will be relocated first from the Greek islands will be transferred to Dekeli, outside Smyrna. It is not known where they will be taken on the long run, the mayor of Dekeli spoke to Reuters where he stated that "Our concern is that, not only ours, but the infrastructure of the entire area are not ready if they are to remain here.
Turkey has recently changes its laws, thus allowing some rights of work to Syrian refugees. The Turkish side states that any Syrian who wishes to, may stay outside the refugee camps (most of them are close to the Turkish border-line). The kind of work as well as the conditions which will be available for the Syrians under the restrictions are already a cause of concern.
Turkey is planning to relocate all those who will not be granted asylum to their country of origin.
