EU-Turkey Visa Waiver in 2017 'Completely Realistic' - Hahn
EU Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn has said it is "completely realistic" to believe that a visa-free regime could be implemented with Turkey over the next two years.
In interview with German daily Die Welt, Hahn has explained this could happen if Ankara meets "a number" of criteria, including stricter border controls and biometric passports.
He has added Turkey should work together with the EU to fight counterfeit documents.
Currently EU member states and Turkey arrange cross-border movement on a bilateral basis.
Hahn, on the other hand, has stressed that Turkey is not moving "in a European direction" and is not doing enough for a sustainable fight against corruption.
