EU States Provide Money to Keep Migrants in Turkey

The member states of the EU have agreed to provide two-thirds of the money to help resolve the migration gridlock in Turkey. The countries’ contributions will be calculated according to their national GDP, RIA Novosti quoted Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders as saying during a plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday, Sputnik News reports.

His statement was done as Italy continues to block the European Commission’s move to allocate three billion euros in EU money to stop the migrant influx into EU countries.
