'No reason' for Ankara to launch threats - Juncker (2)

I trust end of visas according to criteria

(ANSAmed) - Strasbourg, April 19 - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Tuesday Turkey had no reason to launch threats to end a migration deal with the EU unless visas are issued by June. "We sealed a deal, the deal is being applied. There's no need to launch random threats," Juncker said when asked if Turkish Premier Ahmet Davutoglu had been threatening. Juncker said the Turkish premier had reminded him of the liberalisation of the visas "but there was no need". He said "I already told the assembly that it will take place "as Turkey meets the conditions, and that it what it is doing, therefore I trust it will happen on the basis of the criteria".
