Positive Turkey-EU agreement can more clear way for better relations

The positive agreement between Turkey and the European Union can clear the way for a more constructive relationship between the two sides, the chair of the EU-Turkey Friendship Group in the European Parliament said Friday.

European Union leaders earlier this year said the bloc is ready to support a concrete and positive agreement with Turkey, especially in the areas of economic cooperation and migration, after President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan received the head of the European Council, Charles Michel, and the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, in Ankara to discuss bilateral ties and seek a way forward after tensions rose high last year.
