Turkish President urging for steps to be made for Visa free travel for Turkish citizens

The Turkish President Erdogan is urging the EU to start taking action on the Visa free travel for Turkish citizens. Currently Turkey has agreed to slow the flow of illegal immigrants into Europe providing Turkish citizens are granted Visa free travel to all countries in the EU (schengen area). Turkey has also request funding to help support the amount of immigrants they are experiencing. 

The visa free travel agreement has been stalled due to disagreements with the Turkish anti-terrorist laws and being deemed too broad by EU lawmakers. Currently Turkey still does not meet all the requirements to join the EU.
