EU chief warns against refugee policy overhaul

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Sunday said EU’s refugee policy does not need to be overhauled in the wake of the Paris attacks.
Juncker also appealed to world leaders not to start treating asylum-seekers as terrorists.
The EU chief said that “those who organized these attacks, and those who carried them out, are exactly those who the refugees are fleeing (from).”
Juncker told reporters at the G-20 summit in Turkey that “there is no need to revise the European Union’s entire refugee policy.”
Poland’s incoming government declared Saturday it would not accept refugees without security guarantees.
Juncker urged those acting like Poland “to be serious about this, and not to give in to these basic reactions.”
Terrorist attacks rocked the French capital Paris Friday night, killing 129 people and injuring more than 350 others. The Islamic State militant group has claimed responsibility
