According to Reuters media agency, EU Affairs Minister Volkan Bozkir said It is impossible for Turkey to accept changes to its counter-terror law, which already meets European Union standards.

Bozkir also said that making changes to the counter-terror law is not an element of the planned visa-exemption deal with Europe.

The media agency added that the EU last week asked member states to grant visa-free travel to Turks in return for Ankara stopping migrants reaching Europe, but said Turkey still had to change some legislation, including bringing its terrorism laws in line with EU standards.
