THE EU has just TEN DAYS to significantly lower the influx of migrants from Turkey or the system will “completely break down”, a top official has warned.

The 28-member bloc’s Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos made the stark warning as ministers from EU and Balkan nations met in Brussels to try and heal rifts over migrants that have plunged common policy into chaos.

Austria, Serbia and Macedonia have taken their own steps to limit entry to migrants, which unravels the continent’s free-travel Schengen zone.

Greece have expressed fears that extra controls will cause a bottleneck and has said it can no longer wave the tide of arrivals from Turkey onward through the Balkans.

More states said they would follow suit in tightening controls unless a deal promising Turkey 3 billion euros ($3.3 billion) in help to house refugees from the Syrian war in return for preventing them travelling on to Europe was agreed.
