A deal made between Brussels and Ankara dating back to March of 2016, has now prompted the European Union to receive more than 5,000 migrants from Turkey, according to a Daily Sabah news article. In the last four months, the European Union has received 2,188 migrants from Turkey. On the receiving end, Germany has accepted most migrants among its fellow members of the bloc, as the country welcomed over 1,500 of these migrants, while the Netherlands slightly trailed behind the former country with its acceptance of 1,112 refugees. President Erdogan of Turkey will meet with European Union delegates and leaders in Brussels from May 24 to 25 for the NATO Leader's Summit.
