Syrians in Turkey want to leave it

The Republican People’s Party (CHP) opposing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has prepared a report in which it revealed that most of the Syrians in Turkey, estimated to number in the millions, would like to leave for European countries if the circumstances permit them.
The party’s representative in the Turkish parliament, Gamze Akush Elgizdi, said: “The Syrians want to go to Western countries. If Turkey opens its borders, then 90 percent of the Syrians here will head to the West.”
The report pointed out that the lack of job opportunities is one of the most important reasons for the desire to migrate from Turkey.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Turkey hosts the largest number of refugees in the world, with about 3.6 million registered Syrian refugees, and 320,000 people of other nationalities.
