The deals with the European Union, including an agreement on hosting the flow of migrants in Turkey, would be jeopardized if the bloc failed to implement promised visa liberalization for Turks, – Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu (pictured) said.

Speaking to CNN Turk television Cavusolgu said Turkey would present a final text to the EU “and either it will all be canceled, including the visa liberalization and migrant deal, or it will all be implemented.”

Turkey and the EU last year agreed a deal to stem massive flows of illegal migrants to Europe for readiness to footing the bill for the migrants stay in Turkey in a controversial multibillion deal, including visa-free for Turkish citizens.
