Turkish citizens would get visa-free access to the European Union by the end of June as part of a deal being negotiated by the two sides to stem migration flows, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu says.
The EU is looking at giving Turkey more refugee aid, making progress on its EU membership bid and resettling Syrian refugees directly from Turkey, in exchange for Ankara agreeing to the return of all illegal migrants from Greece, EU President Donald Tusk says.
Davutoglu says his country is not "demanding any money" to cope with the migration crisis, but rather "fair burden-sharing."
Tusk says he will aim to work out the details of the agreement before EU leaders hold their next summit on March 17-18.
