'Blackmailer' Turkey Says No Future Migration Help Without EU Visa-Free Deal. (Bloomberg).
Turkey won’t take part in any future plan to stop migrants entering the European Union unless the bloc gives visa-free access to Turkish citizens, the country’s EU affairs minister said.
Turkey will continue to implement the current migration arrangement that helped slow the flow of refugees into Greece to virtually nothing, but “without visa liberalization Turkey won’t be part of any new mechanism,” Omer Celik told reporters in Bratislava, Slovakia, on Saturday.
“Turkey shouldn’t be expected to make any changes to its anti-terror law,” Celik said. “It’s about national security, Europe security.” He said Turkey could “make commitments” about changing its terrorism laws in the future but that would happen only once the country was no longer facing such a threat.
