SOFIA- Relations between Turkey and the European Union have progressed "a great deal" since a recent summit between Ankara and Brussels, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Tuesday.

"Following the last EU-Turkey summit, relations with the EU have accelerated a great deal. A new chapter has been opened after nearly four years," Davutoglu told reporters in Sofia at a joint news conference with his Bulgarian counterpart.

The EU on Monday revived Turkey's membership bid, opening negotiations on a new "chapter", or rules, as part of a bigger deal to help Europe solve its migration crisis.
