Peace will be established in Syria, and the country will be made secure, Turkey’s parliament speaker vowed on Wednesday.
"Our [Syrian] brothers will definitely return to the homes where they were born, grew up, and have bittersweet memories," Binali Yildirim told a symposium on migration and integration policies.
Yildirim added that Turkey would continue to work on the social and cultural integration of Syrian refugees into Turkish society.
Yildirim said that they would open language schools for Syrians in all 81 of Turkey’s provinces, where they can learn both the Turkish tongue and about Turkish culture.
Turkey hosts more than 3.5 million Syrian refugees, more than any other country in the world.
The country has spent more than $32 billion of its own national resources to help and shelter Syrians since the beginning of the Syrian civil war.
Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in 2011, when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
