The European Commission will Wednesday give conditional backing to visa-free travel for more than 80 million Turks as the EU tries to save a controversial deal with Ankara to solve the migrant crisis.Many EU states still have concerns about the legality of the deal and the human rights situation in Turkey, and the plan for 90-day visas must be cleared by all 28 nations in the bloc and the European Parliament.On Wednesday the EU will also allow countries to extend border controls in the Schengen area as a result of the migrant crisis and recent terror attacks.EU rules say countries can reintroduce border controls for up to two years, in periods of up to six months at a time, in exceptional circumstances.The EU is expected to shun a complete overhaul of the Dublin rules.
