Turkey wants Syrian refugees to leave — will this destabilize Syria?

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claimed that the voluntary repatriation of one million Syrian refugees is on the government’s agenda.

Ankara has in the past abused Syrians and gotten a pass because it hosts millions of them, and human rights groups are afraid to critique Ankara. The Turkish ruling party also has close relationships with some western media and is able to use them to spin its policies.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip “Erdogan spoke live to the audience via video conference, claiming that the voluntary repatriation of one million Syrian refugees is on the government’s agenda,” Tasnim claims.
