Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Friday he was hopeful it would be possible to find common ground with the European Union at a summit in Brussels meant to help end Europe's refugee crisis.
"I hope it will be possible to meet on common ground with the EU. I am hopeful about this," Davutoglu told reporters in Brussels.
Davuıtoglu said he hoped to achieve an agreement with EU leaders.
"Of course the EU and Turkey have the same goal, the same objective to help Syrian refugees especially and also to have a new feature in our continents in a right manner. This is our purpose," Davutoglu said on arrival for talks in Brussels.
"I am sure, I hope, we will be achieving our goal."
Davutoglu was arriving for talks with EU leaders who are hoping to convince Turkey to help end Europe's refugee crisis.
Just over a million people have fled war in the Middle East and travelled to the EU in 2015, most taking a dangerous sea voyage from Turkey to Greece and heading north through the Balkans to Germany.
Turkey is a transit point for refugees aiming to reach European countries from Syria and Iraq because of its geography bridging the Middle East and Europe.
