- The German government party CSU rejects the visa-free travel for Turkish citizens across Europe categorically at this time. ' EU accession and visa freedom for Turkey is totally excluded, '' said party secretary Andreas Scheuer Thursday on the requirement of Ankara. According to him, Turkey hit by the actions of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, moving further away from the fundamental values that apply in the EU.
' With the criteria laid down for visa freedom can not be treated as if it is a gambling game. Let us not really fooled by the ball-ball players of Turkish Erdogan bazaar ', Scheuer emphasized. Who wants to reintroduce the death penalty, confining journalists and rights roughshod, really can not count on a reward in the form of free travel. ' Europe can not be blackmailed him. ''
Turkey has threatened the agreement with the EU on the reception of refugees still say this year, as the Turkish wishes met. ' Our patience starts to hit, '' the Foreign Minister Mevlüt Cavusoglu said yet again.
