Europe finds no delight in Turkish deal – POLITICO

Europe finds no delight in Turkish deal – POLITICO: "Under the proposed framework hashed out between the EU and Turkey at a special summit Monday, Europe would double financial assistance to help Turkey cope with the refugee crisis to €6 billion. More controversial: Brussels would accelerate Turkey’s EU membership negotiations and drop visa restrictions for all Turks traveling to the EU.

In return, Turkey would agree to take back all refugees who arrive in Greece illegally. For every Syrian sent back to Turkey, the EU would accept one Syrian from Turkey.

The aim of the strategy would be to dissuade Syrians from trying to reach Greece in the first place. Any Syrian who traveled to Greece illegally and was sent back to Turkey would end up at the back of the queue for legal entry."
