ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey has completed all of the European Union's 72 criteria for granting visa free travel to the bloc and has handed over the relevant documents, President Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Wednesday.

In a news conference in Ankara, Kalin said visa free travel in 2018 would give fresh momentum to Turkey's relations with the union.
