Martin Schulz is a German politician from the SPD. He heads the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats and is President of the European Parliament.
Schulz made the headlines when he was attacked by former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi in 2003, by UK MEP Godfrey Bloom in 2010 – and when he made a controversial statement in his speech to the Israeli parliament, the Knesset in 2014. Schulz says he fluently speaks German, English, French, Spanish, Italian and Dutch.
Turkey's EU affairs minister has said his country met most terms of a migrant deal, and it's Europe's turn to deliver on its promises. The EU insists Ankara must amend its terror laws to gain visa-free access to Europe.
