Germany rejects the Ankara's ultimatum to provide visa-free regime with EU. Germany’s Vice-Chancellor and Chairman of the Social Democratic Party, Sigmar Gabriel stated this, Deutsche Welle reports.
"It depends on Turkey whether we will launch visa-free regime or not", the German politician said.
According to him, Turkey must meet the standards of the EU visa liberalization, but for now it doesn’t.
"Under no circumstances should Germany and Europe allow blackmail in their address", the Vice-Chancellor stressed.
