politician in Europe can say anything to Turkey about refugees. Yet,
the latest statements by Greece are rather stupid. The government of
Greece has made statements that are going to upset the Turkish people
despite Ankara clearly stating that they have maxed out and might
find itself in a dire situation regarding refugees in the future. If
Turkish Coast Guard boats were not patrolling the Aegean Sea, I don't
even want to think what Greece's situation would be. However, the
European Union's indifference regarding the refugees and a safe zone
in Syria, coupled with Greece's ingratitude when it should be
thankful, will end up getting rather expensive for both Europe and
us remind everyone that the number of Syrian refugees in Turkey
swelled by 10,466 as of Aug. 15, 2019, when compared to the previous
month and now totals 3,649,750 people.
1,977,562 of these refugees are male and 1,672,188 are female. With
these numbers, Turkey has already filled the capacity for refugees it
can house. It cannot take in anymore refugees.
cannot be classified as a rich country like some of the EU states.
Citizens of the Republic of Turkey are not as rich as some EU
citizens. Despite this, they have shared all they have with the
refugees. For years they have supported them and hosted them in their
cities, towns and villages.
now they are saying "enough." Because they are seeing that
the EU is not keeping the promises it gave to Turkey regarding this
matter. It is a well-known fact that the EU did not send the total
amount of money it has promised. The EU is not upholding the
requirements of the treaty it has signed with Turkey regarding the
addition, the EU is openly supporting certain terrorist organizations
that are extensions of the PKK in Syria like the People's Protection
Units (YPG). These terrorist organizations are working together with
Daesh and the Syrian regime that is oppressing the people and causing
them to leave their country. The PKK, with the support of the U.S.,
is trying to capture the north of Syria and its representatives in
Syria, and the YPG are oppressing and murdering the people living in
this area. On one hand, there are the regime forces of Syria and on
the other terrorist organizations like the YPG are attacking the
people so that they leave Syria.
sits idly by, watching the situation
citizens are rightfully saying "enough" as they see the
irresponsibility of the EU. For years, Turkey has been making calls
to create a safe zone in Syria to allow the refugees to live there
under protection and in humane conditions. But unfortunately, neither
the EU nor the U.S. have done anything regarding this matter to this
day. In fact, they have always blocked Turkey.
this situation, if Turkey is to open its borders and the Aegean Sea,
the EU's peoples must know that the EU itself and its member
governments will be to blame.
really wonder what the EU will do when it is assaulted by the flow of
thousands of refugees. Will soldiers open fire on the refugees on
these borders? Greek soldiers have already utilized such methods at
times. Their attempts to stop boats carrying people from reaching
Greece, by tearing holes in them have been documented with cameras.
We watched. I wonder what people who do this to a couple of refugees
will do to thousands of them.
is not making threats in this matter. Turkey simply has nothing left
that it can do to help.
a large safe zone for refugees is going to be formed within the north
of Syria and the refugees will be allowed to live in there or they
will migrate to Europe.
would be in Europe's best interest to take President Recep Tayyip
Erdoğan's warnings about this matter seriously. People living in
Turkey no longer have any patience left for this abuse.
the citizens of the Republic of Turkey and the EU, the most correct
solution would be to allow the refugees to live in the safe zone.
Otherwise, it will be chaos and calamity for everyone.
