Migrant crisis: EU agrees joint position to put to Turkey
Migrant crisis: EU agrees joint position to put to Turkey - Geopolitica.info

EU leaders will propose their plan to Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu Friday morning in order to reach an agreement in an attempt to combat the migration crisis. The deal would include the requirement for all migrants traveling from Turkey to Greece to be returned to Turkey. In exchange, the EU would possibly aid Turkey financially, include Turkey in the Schengen agreement, and resettle a Syrian refugee in Turkish refugee camps for every one that is sent back to Turkey. The deal is under a lot of criticism. German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed concerns that Turkey would be unable to provide proper care for the refugees that they are due because of international law. Furthermore, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite questioned the deals legality at all, since sending refugees back to Turkey can be seen as a violation of the rights of refugees outlined in the 1951 UN Geneva Refugee Convention.
