- From the section Europe
Turkey’s president has told the EU it will not change its anti-terror laws in return for visa-free travel, saying: “We’ll go our way, you go yours”.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan was speaking a day after PM Ahmet Davutoglu, who had largely negotiated the EU deal, said he was stepping down.
Reports said Mr Davutoglu also opposed Mr Erdogan’s plan to give more power to the presidency.
Mr Erdogan said this was a national need not a personal requirement.
