Turkey provides shelter, harmony, and hospitality to 5 million refugees, says Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu.
Axar.az reports citing AA that Soylu held a meeting with his German counterpart Horst Seehofer, French counterpart Christophe Castaner and EU commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs, and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos, in the capital Ankara.
Stressing that the Syrian refugee issue is a “big tragedy”, Soylu said the migration has been increasing in the region.
“Turkey displayed an exemplary behavior to the world, by both its [refugee] camps, harmony and hospitality,” Soylu said.
The Syrian regime and its allies, however, have consistently broken the terms of the cease-fire, launching frequent attacks inside the de-escalation zone.
The area is currently inhabited by about 4 million civilians, including hundreds of thousands of people, displaced in recent years by regime forces from cities and towns throughout the war-weary country.
