EU, NATO remain Turkey's key partners: Turkish envoy

The European Union and NATO remain Turkey's key partners despite its rapprochement with Russia, and differences with the EU on the application of a deal on migrants can be soon ironed out, Turkey's ambassador to the bloc said on Wednesday, Reuters reported.

Career diplomat Selim Yenel said Ankara was ready to change its anti-terrorism law, as requested by Brussels, and might not reintroduce the death penalty, a move EU leaders say would end talks to join the bloc.

"Nothing has changed," Yenel said, dismissing Western concerns that a meeting between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russia's Vladimir Putin might signal a shift in Turkey's foreign policy toward Moscow.
