European Unions and Turkey have ended a summit in Brussels and delayed a decision on how to ease the migration crisis. Leaders have been discussing an offer by Turkey to do more to stop illegal migration in return for more EU aid and accelerated EU membership talks for Turkey.
The leaders said, they had agreed on the broad principles of a plan but needed more time to work on the details of a deal. After the summit concluded, Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel tweeted that summit Chairman Donald Tusk would take forward the proposals and work out the details with the Turkish side before the March, 17-18th migration summit. Europe is facing its biggest refugee crisis since World War Two, with most migrants coming via Turkey.
