EU cannot treat Turkey like a beggar, Erdoğan says

We don’t aim to break away from the EU, but the EU shall take its responsibilities, too. The EU cannot see Turkey [as] a beggar. It does not have such a right… that’s what we’ll tell them,” Erdoğan told reporters before he departed for Brussels for NATO and EU meeting on May 24.

Turkey would tell Germany “goodbye” if it decided to withdraw its troops from the Incirlik air force base,” the Turkish President also added as reported by Reuters.
