Launch of the visa liberalization dialogue with Turkey: statements by Ahmet Davutoğlu, Cecilia Malmström, and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan

121 views

On 16 December 2013, Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, went to Ankara to sign the EU/Turkey readmission agreement with Ahmet Davutoğlu, Turkish Minister for Foreign Affairs. The main objective of this agreement was to establish, on the basis of reciprocity, procedures for the rapid and orderly readmission, by each side, of the persons having entered or residing on the territory of the other side in an irregular manner. The agreement included provisions related both to the readmission of the nationals of the EU Member States and Turkey, and to the readmission of any other persons (including the third country nationals and the stateless persons) that entered into, or stayed on, the territory of either sides directly arriving from the territory of the other side. Cecilia Malmström and Ahmet Davutoğlu then together initiated the EU/Turkey Visa liberalisation dialogue. It aimed to make progress towards the elimination of the visa obligation which was imposed on the Turkish citizens travelling to the Schengen area for a short term visit. This video shows the press conference given by Ahmet Davutoğlu, Cecilia Malmström and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Turkish Prime Minister, following the signing ceremony.
