Turkey has fufilled the required 72 criteria to meet a visa deal with the European Union, Ankara's minister for EU affairs said on Thursday, adding that it was unacceptable for Turkey if the deal was postponed unfairly.

Volkan Bozkir also told a news conference in Strasbourg that Turkey's next steps would be decided in line with instructions from President Tayyip Erdogan. Bozkir's comments were broadcast live on Turkish television.
