Amid the ongoing Ankara-EU talks for accession, a senior European Union official revealed that the issue of visa liberalization for Turkey would be a topic of discussion in the upcoming autumn.

The statements from the EU official on Sunday have shed light on the potential progress in the relationship between Turkey and the European bloc, particularly regarding the long-standing issue of visa restrictions.

Turkey's aspirations for EU membership have been marked by twists and turns, with various challenges and milestones along the way.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's recent announcement of the expected resumption of EU accession talks following Ankara's role in facilitating Sweden's NATO membership has stirred renewed hope.

However, the outcome of the upcoming discussions remains uncertain, as both parties navigate their shared interests and differences.

Erdoğan told journalists; “I believe that these will be in favor of Turkey. (European Commission President) Ursula von der Leyen also told us some positive things about it today. I think my advisor, Çağatay, will return with positive developments.”

Erdoğan underlined that Turkey fulfilled its promises vis-a-vis the bloc, adding; “We want to see the tangible results of the negotiations carried out on a win-win principle as soon as possible.”
