"We should find the ways to help those, who are in need to be protected, especially the families from Syria and Iraq. The cooperation with Turkey is essential for this issue. I hope that we will advance a little in this issue today," Schulz told reporters following the meeting with Davutoglu.
Schulz added that he hoped that the sides would find the ways to help refugees during the ongoing summit.
Europe has been beset by a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants fleeing their home countries in the Middle East and North Africa to escape violence and poverty. The majority of migrants, especially from Iraq and Syria, arrive in Europe through Turkey.
