Turkey's president: No refugee deal without EU visa waiver

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that: "If you're still imposing criteria on Turkey which provides important support to the European Union by preventing those living in camps and pre-fabricated homes who are waiting to go to Europe (from getting there), then I'm sorry."
