EU All Set to Approve Turkey’s Action Plan to Streamline Entry of Refugees

More than 600,000 migrants have till now reached the EU through the sea this year. Lots of them are coming from Turkey to Greece before heading north. Turkey has since then made various demands in exchange so as to streamline the flow. In a recent press conference held in Brussels, president of the European Council Donald Tusk said that he felt “cautious optimism” over the deal that was done.

Latest reports suggest that an Afghan man in Bulgaria was shot dead when he was trying to come from Turkey to Bulgaria on Thursday. He was amongst a large group of migrants that were trying to enter Bulgaria. This incident sparked worldwide outrage as a result of which the meeting called in Brussels has agreed to accelerate the visa liberalisation for Turks who want to visit EU’s borderless Schengen area only if Turkey happens to comply with a certain criteria.

Turkey has also asked for an amount of €3bn in aid which German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the EU states are considering. Jean-Claude Juncker who is the president of the European Commission said that talks regarding the sum which needs to be given to Ankara will continue for the coming days while Mrs. Merkel visits Turkey this weekend. Turkey has also planned to establish international “safe zone” for the refugees in northern Syria, however Tusk ruled out saying that Russia’s involvement in Syria has made things more difficult.
