Erdogan said EU should support Turkiye in fight against illegal migration

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the EU must support the country in the fight against illegal migration, as this problem won’t disappear from the world agenda, TASS reports with reference to the Kathimerini newspaper


Recep Tayyip Erdogan noted that there is now a significant increase in migrant flows throughout the world, both due to political instability and various kinds of fears.

“Unfortunately, criminal structures are quickly emerging that take advantage of these people’s intentions and earn serious income. As we have always said, this situation is not a problem that states can solve alone. Illegal migration is a common challenge which requires joint efforts,” Erdogan said.

According to him, it is now important that the EU supports Turkiye in the fight against illegal migration. Erdogan noted that it is necessary to think about this issue holistically and discuss formulas for solving problems.
