EU leaders discussed the latest developments in the migration crisis and how to accelerate the implementation of the measures agreed in September and October:
stepping up cooperation with third countries, including Turkey
decisions on relocation
setting up hotspots in Greece and Italy and reinforcing FRONTEX and EASO
effectively reinforcing control of EU external borders
President Tusk warned that the future of Schengen is at stake. He repeated the need for the EU to regain the control of its external borders and to effectively proceed to the registration of migrants: "It must be clear that without registration there will be no rights", said President Tusk.
EU leaders particularly focused their discussions on cooperation with Turkey. President Tusk announced a possible EU-Turkey summit to be organised as soon as possible.
