It will not be easy to find a new consensus. Ankara wants to impose progress on its demands, including support for its Idlib operation and significantly more funding for Syrians in Turkey, but EU leaders do not want to appear as President Erdogan`s hostage. Brussels` desire to remain firm in its other disputes with Ankara reduces the prospects for a quick solution to the current migration dispute. Turkey was hosting about 3 million refugees at the time of the agreement. The vast majority came from Syria (2.7 million), although there were a large number of Iraqis and Afghans in the country. State resources were strained and the government was unable to provide effective protection to refugees. Aksoy said that if the situation in northwestern Syria were to be concealed, the risk of a massive influx of refugees at the Turkish border would continue to rise. The Council is made up of representatives of the Turkish government, the European Council and the European Commission. It is essential to the organisation and direction of relations between Turkey and the EU. The aim is to implement the Association Agreement in political, economic and commercial matters. The Association Council meets twice a year at the ministerial level.
The Council makes decisions unanimously. Turkey and the EU each have one voice. Turkey`s Interior Minister, Soylu, said on Twitter on Tuesday that more than 130,000 refugees had left Turkey for Greece. The abuse, blackmail and torture of migrants imprisoned in the Libyan detention system is not an unfortunate side effect, but a direct consequence of EU policy. This approach also leaves the EU open to accusations of hypocrisy and undermines its ability to protect refugees and undermines its broader human rights diplomacy. Critics said the deal could force migrants determined to reach Europe to use other potentially more dangerous routes, such as travel between North Africa and Italy. Human rights groups are highly critical of the deal: Amnesty International accuses the EU of “turning its back on the global refugee crisis.”  A Chatham House document argued that the agreement, by over-meeting Erdogan`s demands, encouraged Turkey to make “more unilateral concessions in the future.”  One of the main problems that many human rights organizations have with the agreement is that Turkey does not meet the standards for welcoming refugees. In particular, many refugees cannot apply for asylum in Turkey and, while there, they do not have a quality standard of living.
 In addition, refugees in Turkey are limited to certain areas where they are allowed to stay.
