The European Union will remain cautious on its improved relationship with Turkey, which must stick to its recent more “moderate behavior,” European Council President Charles Michel said after chairing a summit of the bloc’s leaders on Thursday.

Michel said he may pay a visit to Turkey next month.

“We really hope it will be possible to improve the relationship with Turkey, but at the same time … for us it is important that Turkey keep a positive behavior, a moderate behavior,” he told a news conference.

“But we remain cautious and we remain careful, and indeed we are in contact with the Turkish authorities in order to pay a visit probably in April to Turkey.”
