BERLIN - There are no signs that a deal reached between the European Union and Turkey last year to stem the flow of illegal migrants into the bloc has been suspended by Ankara, a spokesman for the German government spokesman.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in an interview on Wednesday that Turkey may cancel a migrant readmission agreement with the European Union, and is also re-evaluating a $6 billion refugee deal with the bloc.

The German government spokesman said the numbers of migrants arriving in Greece continued to be very low in the last few days.
