Turkey will not apply a readmission agreement with the European Union meant to stem the flow of illegal migrants if it does not get the visa-free travel to Europe it has been promised, its EU affairs minister Omer Celik said on Thursday.

Speaking at a news conference in Ankara with visiting EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos, Celik also said Turkey was committed to its March agreement with Brussels on migration and that it was fulfilling its responsibilities.
