The medical aid organization Doctors Without Borders says it will no longer seek European Union funding in protest against the EU's migrant deal with Turkey.

Secretary General Jerome Oberreit said Friday that Doctors Without Borders "will no longer request funds from the EU and its member states."

The EU money totaled around 46 million euros ($52 million) in 2015, about eight percent of the organization's total budget.

Oberreit said the group still plans to keep working in Greece and Turkey and will seek money from other sources to keep its projects going.
