A statement by the commission stated: "These funds are part of the additional 3 billion euros, announced in June 2021, following the European Council, to continue EU assistance to refugees in Turkey between 2021 and 2023.”
According to Oliver Varhelyi, the Commisssioner for Neighborhood and Enlargement, the package demonstrates the EU's continued commitment to work with Turkey.
