Greek PM:We Refuse to Be "Warehouse of Souls;" Says EU States Must Share Load of Migrant Crisis

With migrant numbers stacking up in Greece, there's tough talk from its Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, the Euro News website reports today (February 25, 2016).

He says Athens will block future European Union (EU) agreements, if member states don't do more to share the burden of the crisis.

Migrants are now getting trapped in Greece because of fences and tougher checks elsewhere.

"What we refuse to do is accept the transformation of our country into a permanent warehouse of souls and, at the same time, continue to act within the European Union and at summits as if there's nothing wrong," Tsipras told the EU parliament.
