EU must accelerate promised aid to refugees, Turkey foreign minister says


ANKARA (Reuters) - The European Union must accelerate the delivery of promised humanitarian aid for some 3 million Syrian refugees living in Turkey, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told a joint news conference with EU officials on Friday.


He said a concrete roadmap needed to be agreed for a visa liberation deal with the bloc. The EU has pledged 3 billion euro support for Syrian migrants in return for Ankara's help in curbing the number of people embarking from there for Europe.
