[European Union] EU to offer Turkey more cash for Syrian refugees before Erdogan meeting

14 Mar 2018

Kathimerini reports that ''the European Union’s executive is due to approve a further 3 billion euros in funding for Syrian refugees living in Turkey, EU officials said, ahead of a meeting with President Tayyip Erdogan later this month. 

Europe’s relations with Erdogan have been fraught in recent years but the EU depends on Turkey to keep a tight lid on immigration from the Middle East, where the war in Syria has killed hundreds of thousands and pushed millions from homes. 

Top EU officials will meet Erdogan on March 26 in the Bulgarian city of Varna despite misgivings among many on the European side.''
