There is no fixed date for the NATO migrant mission in the Aegean Sea to end, an Alliance official said Friday, after Turkey called for the mission's completion "by the end of the year" because it had "reached its goal".The mission referred to was launched in February to tackle the huge flow of refugees and migrants to Greece on board rickety boats from Turkey.Several warships were involved in the mission launched after Turkey, Greece and Germany requested it.Isik said Turkey would remain committed to tackling the flow of migrants and asked that the NATO mission be brought to an end "by the end of this year".
