 A "Coordination Meeting on Syria" took place in the Turkish capital of Ankara under chairmanship of Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay.
Speaking to reporters prior to the meeting, Besir Atalay underlined that the "Coordination Meeting on Syria" took place every two weeks in order to evaluate the present situation of the camps where Syrians stay in Turkey.
"The number of Syrians staying in Turkish camps are 185,585. There are around 100,000 Syrians staying in Turkey out of the camps," Atalay noted.
"Coordination for Syrians staying in Turkey are good," Atalay said.
"We provide educational, health, infrastructure and religious services in the camps as if we were administering cities," Atalay emphasized.
