Via T24 (Link in Turkish) – The Mayor of the Parliamentary Sub-Commission on Refugees and the Justice and Development Party (AKP) Antalya Deputy Atay Uslu said that currently 4.3 million migrants live in Turkey. 3.6 million of them are Syrians. There are 300 thousand Iraqis, Palestinians and other international protection seekers living in Turkey. Uslu pointed out that only 3 people hold a refugee status in Turkey.
“We have seriously dealt with the Syrians issue so far. But for the Iraqis, Palestinians and other international protection seekers we have not done much, yet. I recommend to focus on them, particularly. But this does not mean that we will give up on the Syrian issue.” Uslu said.
