ANKARA - Turkey expects steps from the European Union on allowing Turks to travel to the bloc without visas as soon as possible, President Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Wednesday.

Under a landmark migrant deal agreed between Turkey and Europe, Ankara agreed to halt the flow of illegal migrants to Europe in exchange for visa-free travel and aid. The visa deal has stalled because of disagreements about Turkish anti-terror laws, which European lawmakers say are too broad.
