BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union said it was confident its cooperation with Turkey on migration will continue to hold firm, a spokeswoman for the bloc said on Friday.

Turkey's foreign minister said earlier in the day that Ankara could cancel a bilateral deal with Athens on returning migrants from Greece to Turkey, a key element of the broader EU-Turkey deal on migration.
