Migration deal with Turkey: "It won't affect refugees in need of real protection"
Many illegal migrants enter the EU through Turkey. To prevent a further influx, the EU and Turkey started to negotiate a readmission agreement in 2002, but it only resulted in a deal now that Turkey's demand for visa liberalisation has been taken into account. The EP endorsed the deal and calls for implementing it without further delays and new demands. "It won't affect refugees in need of real protection," said Renate Sommer, a German member of the EPP group, who wrote the resolution.
