Turkey Intends to Fulfill 6 Final Benchmarks for Visa-Free Entry to EU - Foreign Minister

Turkey intends to fulfill the six remaining requirements for its visa liberalization agreement with the European Union, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 15th March, 2019) Turkey intends to fulfill the six remaining requirements for its visa liberalization agreement with the European Union, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday.

"Turkey has to fulfill just six more conditions for visa liberalization, we intend to finish this process soon," the foreign minister said.

Cavusoglu also confirmed Turkey's continued intention to join the European Union.

The European Union launched the visa liberalization dialogue with Turkey in 2013. The bloc outlined 72 conditions for Ankara to meet in order to eliminate visa requirements for Turkish nationals wishing to enter the European Union. Recognizing Cyprus as an independent country and revising its anti-terrorism laws are conditions that are yet to be fulfilled by Turkey.
