'One million' Syrian refugees in Turkey: PM
 
 
 

ANKARA : The number of Syrian refugees in Turkey has reached ‘almost one million,’ Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday, while pledging to keep accepting those fleeing the war. ‘Are we supposed to ask our brothers not to come, and to die in Syria?’ Erdogan said as he addressed his party's lawmakers in parliament. The three-year conflict in Syria has sent millions fleeing to neighbouring countries and beyond.
 Turkey, a staunch opponent of the regime in Damascus, is one of the countries that has born the brunt of the refugee crisis, along with Lebanon and Jordan.
