Tusk Visits EU States Ahead of Turkey Migration Summit

Ahead of the EU summit on migration, EC President Donald Tusk is making a lightning tour of key states on the refugees' Balkan route. A cap on migrant numbers has led to families being blocked on the Greek border.
Over four days this week, President of the European Council (EC) Donald Tusk is meeting seven leaders in key countries on the migrant route which leads across the Balkan states to Europe's north, AFP reported. Tusk aims to find a common consensus on migration ahead of the March 7 meeting of European leaders with Turkey.
Chancellor Angela Merkel said the television pictures of migrants making their way into western Europe showed the urgency of next week's meeting in tackling the crisis: "The pictures show us clearly every day that there is a need for talks," adding that she was in regular contact with Greece's prime minister: "We need to deal with the difficult situation in Greece and ... return to the Schengen system as soon as possible."
