Erdogan visits Syrian refuge camps in Sanliurfa
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has completed a visit to two camps housing Syrian refugees in Ceylanpinar and Akcakale, towns in the southern province of Sanliurfa along the border with Syria yesterday. Erdogan arrived in Sanliurfa early on Saturday for a two-day visit. The prime minister, accompanied by his wife and daughter as well as several other government ministers, attended a combined inauguration ceremony for a number of facilities in the province. Erdogan delivered his remarks as the leader of the Syrian National Coalition for Opposition and Revolutionary Forces, Ahmad Muaz al-Khatib, stood beside him. "Leaders not accepted by their people cannot remain in power," Erdogan added. While addressing the Syrians in Ceylanpinar, Erdogan said that Turkey has opened its doors to its Syrian brothers and sisters. "Ceylanpinar is an important place and it is facing many problems. I assume these problems will continue for a while. But the brutal Syrian regime can no longer survive in Syria," said Erdogan.
