They understood the seriousness of this matter. We are working with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to return refugees, especially Syrians, to their countries. We, the neighboring countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq, have launched an initiative in this regard. Like the neighboring countries which welcome the most Syrians. The situation in Lebanon is very bad. Of course, not by pushing them by force, but in order to be able to bring something to the people who have returned to their country on the ground, inside Syria, as in our areas of operations, as in Idleb; School, education, health and job creation projects must be implemented, ”he said.

Çavuşoğlu said that European countries have so far been opposed to rebuilding Syria because of the civil war, and said: “It was true, rebuilding a country during the war was unrealistic. We all have a clear attitude towards the regime, but it is possible to meet basic needs on the ground, ”he said.
THE SITUATION IN AFGHANISTAN
Stressing that the situation in Afghanistan is very different from that in Syria, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu continued: “It is neither fair nor possible to send people immediately. We have no interlocutors. We were already sending Afghans to Afghanistan by air during the previous administration period. We also deliver to Pakistan. After all, it is a problem, a problem all over the world. With COVID-19, this problem started to increase even more. If this is a global problem, let’s solve it together as an international community. We always see that this is a problem, there is also a disorder in society. But it is extremely wrong to approach this issue with a racist and fascist approach. On the other hand, even if it is a social problem, we are working with all our institutions, in particular our Ministry of the Interior, to assess it calmly and find a solution by producing new policies.
