The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ahmet Davutoglu, has announced on 04/12/2013, in Bruxelles in Belgium, after a meeting with a commission from the European Union that Turkish citizens will be able to travel inside Europe without the need of a visa within 3,5 years.

The commission from the European Union, led by Stefan Füle who is European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, announced that they are not yet sure about when exactly the visa requirements would be changed for Turkish citizens travelling to Europe but that change is (finally) on the way.

However, both men agreed that this was a historical day for the European Union, Turkey and the integration of Turkey into Europe. Mister Stefan Füle also added that today led to positive change in the relation between the European Union and Turkey.

The meetings will be continued on 16/12/2013 in Ankara.
