Syrian refugees are real problem for Turkey
As it seems thousands of Syrian refugees have become a real problem for the Turkish Government.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmed Davutoglu told the UN Security Council to act "without delay" to set up safe havens, warning that 80,000 Syrians are already in camps in Turkey, with 4,000 crossing the border each day. Hurriyet Daily News informs about this.
"How long are we going to sit and watch while an entire generation is being wiped out by random bombardment and deliberate mass targeting?", demanded Davutoğlu, slamming the Security Council's failure to act on Syria.
But world powers failed to reach an agreement on safe zones which would imply authorizing a highly controversial protective military operation.
Speaking to reporters after his address at the Security Council, Davutoğlu lashed out at the disagreement that emerged from the meeting. "A historic opportunity was missed," Davutoğlu said in televised remarks. "Now is not the time to talk but to act," he added.
According to the source more than 80,000 Syrian refugees have found temporary flats in Turkey.
