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
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.
