Twelve countries have yet to contribute anything to the €3 billion EU-Turkey deal, according to a European Commission report out Wednesday. Belgium, Austria, Poland, Slovenia, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, and Spain are among EU member states that have contributed nothing to the humanitarian assistance fund for refugees in Turkey. In the report, the European Commission says the deterrent aspect of the deal seems to be working: in the three weeks before the deal came into force, 26,878 migrants arrived on Greek islands; since April 4, there have been only 5,847 irregular arrivals.
