The debate will take place from 16.00 to 18.00.Mr Maarten Verwey, appointed by Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to coordinate the implementation of the deal, will present the fifth progress report on the cooperation with Ankara since the signature of the EU-Turkey statement, on 18 March 2016.

Through the Facility for Refugees in Turkey, the EU committed at the end of 2015 to mobilise 3 billion euro for the period 2016-2017 to assist Syrian refugees and asylum-seekers in the country (1 billion from the EU budget, 2 billion from Member States).According to Commission´s data, by the end of February 2017, 2.2 billion had already been allocated, with half of the financial envelope already contracted (1.5 billion) and 750 million effectively disbursed.MEPs will also be presented with an assessment on the provision of emergency support within the Union, exceptionally activated to provide assistance in those member states more affected by the influx of refugees and migrants. The Commission will release up to €700 million for the period 2016 to 2019 to fund emergency support.Finally, representatives of the Commission will update the committee on the situation in the Western Balkan migration route, following its intended closure in March last year.
