Rutte ‘moderately optimistic’ EU, Turkey can reach migration deal
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Monday he was moderately optimistic that the European Union leaders and Ankara would reach agreement over a deal to limit flows of migrants into Europe through Turkey.
“You are talking about pledges, I think it is more about coming to a joint approach and I’m moderately optimistic that we can take such steps today,” Rutte, whose country holds the six-month rotating presidency of the European Union, said on arriving for a meeting between EU leaders and Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.
