The European Commission announced the launch of a large-scale humanitarian programs to support Syrian refugees in Turkey. The program also involves "World Food Programme", the Turkish organization "Red Cross" and the Ministry of Family and Social Policy of Turkey.
Under the program, EU is to earmark Turkey 348 million euros on the electronic cards that will be issued to the Syrian refugees. The funds will help ensure decent living conditions for migrants until 2017.
Under the Ankara- Brussels Agreement as of March this year, the European Union is committed to pay the Republic of Turkey three billion euros for the maintenance of illegal refugees.
The Republic of Turkey is one of the founding members of the Council of Europe, as well as the "associate" member of the EU since 1963. Officially the Republic became a candidate for membership in the European Union in 1987, but negotiations on the full accession of Turkey to the organization began only in 2005.
In 2016, Ankara and Brussels signed the new Agreement, which is the next stage in the negotiations on Turkey's membership in the European Union. The decision to introduce visa-free regime for Turkey is a part of this Agreement, according to which Turkey has agreed to take back the migrants who illegally left its territory for Greece. The significant flow of refugees who fled from Syria because of the civil war resulted in a political crisis in a number of European Union countries.
