Turkey Eu Migrant Agreement

The 2016 coup attempt and the ensuing state of emergency put migrants and asylum seekers at increased risk of refoulement. Despite all this, the agreement between the EU and Turkey remains in force. Thousands of people are still trapped on the Greek islands, in a state of legal floating. The European Commission decided on Wednesday that the second tranche of €3 billion promised under the refugee deal would be made available. In contrast, the Turkish government said it has received €1.85 billion from the EU so far. Financial support from the EU Fund reaches Turkey through projects. Aid is not provided in the state coffers. In 1959, Turkey was one of the first countries to seek close cooperation with the young European Economic Community (EEC). This cooperation was implemented within the framework of an “association agreement”, the so-called Ankara Agreement, signed on 12 September 1963. .
