He warned that any review of Ankara’s relations with Europe would include a deal to curb illegal migration to the bloc.

“We can continue our economic relations with the European Union, Erdogan said, but we may need to review our political and administrative ties. We will sit down and talk with our government and review everything from A to Z.”

Erdogan’s latest words came a day after he said Europeans would not be able to walk safely on the streets if they kept up their current attitude towards Turkey.

That drew a furious response from Brussels which summoned the Turkish ambassador on Thursday to explain the comments.
