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.
