Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned the European Union on Thursday that it would allow millions of refugees to head to its shores if it criticised Turkey's military offensive in Syria.

"Hey EU, wake up. I say it again: if you try to frame our operation there as an invasion, our task is simple: we will open the doors and send 3.6 million migrants to you," Erdogan said in a speech to parliament.
