Soylu issued the threat on Thursday following a diplomatic row between Ankara and Germany and The Netherlands, fuelled by the latter's ban on allowing Turkish ministers to stage rallies there. We are not applying the readmission agreement at the moment, and we are evaluating the refugee deal.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is courting Turks overseas for support in a referendum due to be held on 16 April that would reform Turkey's parliamentary democracy into an executive presidency, similar to the United States.
In particular Turkey has become embroiled in an unprecedented diplomatic spat with the Netherlands, flinging insults comparing the country to the Nazis which have drawn global condemnation.
Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said on March 17 the government is "experiencing a problematic process", and an uncomfortable environment trying to fulfill a visa deal with the EU.
Brussels and Turkey signed a landmark agreement one year ago tomorrow under all migrants arriving in Greece are sent back across the Aegean, with Europe taking in one Syrian refugee from a Turkish camp for every person returned.
"I believe, God willing, that after the April 16 vote, parliament will do the necessary concerning your demands for capital punishment", Erdogan said at a televised rally in the western city of Canakkale, his words greeted by loud cheers.
FBI's Comey offers first public confirmation of Trump-Russia inquiry
FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers both appeared before the House Intelligence Committee hearing in which Rep. Nunes also said Monday that there is "no evidence to date that officials from any campaign conspired with Russian agents".
In an interview published by Hamburg weekly Der Spiegel, Germany's foreign minister suggested that for now the most that Turkey can hope for is to one day achieve a "privileged partnership" with the bloc. "Patience is needed", said Bahceli, who supports Erdogan's bid for a presidential system in Turkey.
"The EU-Turkey deal is playing roulette with the futures of some of the world's most vulnerable".
European Union officials have repeatedly warned Turkey that restoring capital punishment would spell the end of its decades-long bid to join the bloc. Roughly 1.4 million Turks in Germany and approximately 380,000 in the Netherlands have the right to vote on the potential legislation.
Celik said that "the European Union is benefitting from the agreement while Turkey is not". "What the people say, what the law says, that's what is important for us", he added.
"There is a risk of a formal breakdown but let's not forget that these negotiations at now already at a still stand because of Austria's refusal to open new chapters of accession, so nothing will actually change", Aktar said in a pessimistic mood while Turkish opinion support to the landmark project is at a record low.
