    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Visa liberalization for Turkish citizens, which may take place in June, is only possible if 72 conditions are met, French President Francois Hollande said Tuesday.

    "Visa liberalization is likely to take place in June in case all conditions are met, and there are 72 [of them]," Hollande said at a press conference following the EU-Turkey summit on Monday.

    Brussels could allocate another funding for Turkey in the end of 2018 in case Ankara needs to introduce additional measures to take back migrants, Hollande added.
