Turkey Warns of Incoming Three Million-Strong Migrant Surge

Turkey Warns of Incoming Three Million-Strong Migrant Surge, by John Hayward.

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Veysi Kaynak said on Sunday that a new wave of migrants is on its way from Iran to Turkey, three million strong, and they might not be planning to stop in Turkey.

“Unfortunately, they are mostly Afghans again from the further east of Iran,” Kaynak said of these new refugees …

“Europe and the world should think about it. They want to come to Turkey as a transit point and they do not want to stay in Turkey. They want to cross into the west and for them, Turkey is an important barrier and is enduring an important cost,” warned the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister.
