Migrant crisis: EU 'to back' visa-free travel for Turkey - BBC NewsThe European Commission will give conditional approval for Turks to travel without visas to Europe's passport-free Schengen area, sources have told the BBC.
The move is part of a deal in which Turkey is taking back migrants who have crossed over the Aegean Sea to Greece.
But Turkey must still meet EU criteria, and the deal must be approved by the European Parliament and member states.
The EU fears that without a visa deal, Turkey will not control migration.
Was this the whole point of Merkel's migrant policy all along, Turkey into the EU by the backdoor ?
How will this affect Brexit ?
