Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 23
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
In February 2016, over 20,000 Syrian refugees entered the territory of Greece, Turkish Hurriyet newspaper reported Feb. 23.
This figure will grow unless a new structure for fighting illegal migration is not created in Turkey, said the newspaper.
The Turkish Interior Minister Efkan Ala said Feb. 2 that a new structure for fighting illegal migration will be created under the Turkish Interior Ministry.
He said that the Interior Ministry will appeal to Turkey's Cabinet of Ministers for approval of the new structure.
Currently, Turkey is hosting more than two million Syrian refugees on its territory. The Syrian refugee camps in the country accommodate about 300,000 people. The rest of them are spread across the provinces and cities of Turkey.
