Turkish President Erdogan makes a speech during his meeting with mukhtars at the Presidential Palace in AnkaraBy Nick Tattersall and Seda Sezer ISTANBUL (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan told the European Union on Friday, Turkey would not make changes to its terrorism laws required under a deal to curb migration, and declared: "we're going our way, you go yours".
