Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said he wanted the European Union to grant Turks visa-free travel to the passport-free Schengen area by October at the latest. "The promise that was made was for the month of October this year," Erdogan said in a televised speech. Erdogan's outgoing Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu had previously suggested June as the deadline, but the comments by the president indicate he expects Brussels to come good on its committment.
