The United Kingdom has lost a court case against the EU that aimed to limit the benefits of Turkish migrant workers, which are granted by the Ankara Agreement, signed in 1963.
The UK authorities had carried the case to EU with the intention of opting out from social benefit and welfare payments to Turkish migrant workers on February 2013. However the case has reportedly been dismissed by the EU in favor of Turkish migrant workers, meaning they will receive the payments, according to UK's Daily Mail's report.
The UK authorities have made similar attempts to lessen UK's attraction for migrant workers which could increase Britain's spending on welfare payments and pensions, according to the report.
The Turkish migrant workers have been a big part of the EU's workforce since the early 1960s, contributing heavily to European countries' economy and society.
