BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced after the first meeting at the Ankara peace talks that his country will not allow terrorists to appear in the area created on the border with Syria; instead, he has proposed to turn it into a refugee city.

“For the refugees there (on the Syrian border), it is necessary to create a city for them to participate in agriculture. I explained to my colleagues that it is necessary to build infrastructure for them. It is necessary to prevent the formation of a terrorist corridor,” the Turkish president said after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Ankara on Monday.

The Turkish capital Ankara on Monday hosted the tripartite summit of the guarantors of the Astana process (Russia, Turkey and Iran) on the Syrian settlement.

During the meeting on Monday, the three presidents agreed to establish a constitutional committee  to resolve future political disputes.

Furthermore, the three presidents discussed the future of the Idlib Governorate, but no official agreement was made to resolve their differences.

Please make space in Ankara Turki instead of Idlib in Syria. You will ensure to filter out all the Jihadis as you very well know who they are and how to identify them better. I am sure the civilians from Idlib and all other Syrian Refugees who want to quit Syria and be part of this refugee city will thank you for over 1000 years and bless you with eternal life.

If it’s controlled and managed by the Syrian government than that’s fine. Otherwise it is another excuse to illegally invade and occupy Syria.

I suggest the ‘refugee city’ be based in Famagusta and Dhekelia in Cyprus.
That way, both the EU (Britain) and Turkey provide safe haven for displaced Syrians, right opposite the Syrian coast.

Turkey presence in Cyprus is illegal!
Turkey go home [in Mongolia. Mongolia is twice the size of Turkey, has 3M inhabitants and they found huge shale gas basin, moreover, it’s economical for the military : you don’t need a navy. If Turks convert back to their religion of origin, they’ll be welcomed]
