BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union and Turkey agreed on Sunday a 3-billion euro ($3.2 billion) plan to confront the flows of migrants into Europe, part of a wider deal to speed up Ankara’s efforts to join the 28-nation bloc.
“We agreed that (Turkey’s) accession process needs to be re-energized,” European Council President Donald Tusk told a news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker following a summit with the EU’s 28 heads of state and government.
Davutoglu said they agreed two EU-Turkey summits a year.
