Turkey’s Erdogan: ‘Safe zones in Syria most livable’


The safe zones established as a result of lengthy efforts and sacrifices are the most peaceful and livable places in Syria today, the Turkish president said Thursday.

“Turkey was left alone at nearly every step taken during the Syrian crisis,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at a gathering in Istanbul.

Erdogan stressed those who did nothing except erecting barbed wires for Syrian refugees in the last eight years, continue blocking efforts to ease “homesickness” of the refugees.

The president also wishes God’s mercy upon 65 people who lost their lives in a train accident in Pakistan, and wished speedy recovery to those wounded.

A deadly fire broke out on a passenger train in the northeast Pakistan on Thursday morning.
