The European Commission continues to tweak an agreement with Turkey regarding migrants who traveled through Turkey on their way to Greece and other countries in Europe. On Wednesday, the commission recommended that Turkish citizens be allowed to travel to Europe without visas in some cases, a move the Turkish government is praising. The BBC's Selin Girit tells Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson that the deal has reduced the flow of people from Turkey to Greece.
