Turkey's Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has warned that the migrant swap deal between the EU and Turkey risks collapse [EPA]
(VOVworld) – The European Council has set requirements for Turkey if it wants to have the right to visa-free travel in Europe.
Bild, a German newspaper, quoted the EC report on the implementation of the EU-Turkey agreement to resolve the migrant crisis as saying that if Ankara meets the requirements, the EC will propose a draft regulation to include Turkey on the EU’s visa free list.
Earlier Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that a migration deal between the EU and Ankara could collapse unless Turkish nationals see visa restrictions eased by June as promised.
Removing visa restrictions for Turkish citizens is part of an EU-Turkey deal aimed at stopping the flow of people into Europe.
