BRUSSELS European Union leaders signed an agreement with Turkey on Sunday, offering cash, visas and closer ties in exchange for Turkish help in stemming the flow of refugees to Europe.
The EU will provide "an initial" 3 billion euros ($3.2 billion) for Turkey to improve conditions for the 2.2 million or so Syrian refugees in the country. A key element is to provide Arabic-speaking schools and other services to encourage refugees not to head to Europe.
