Turkey began construction in Syria refugee camps

Turkish workers began construction in Syria camps for thousands of refugees trying to reach Turkey.

In this way the Turkish authorities intend to suspend the flow of refugees, which goes across their borders, reports «BBC Russia».

Last week about 35 thousand Syrian refugees from Aleppo, where government troops launched an offensive, trying to get into Turkey in the border region of Kilis.

However, Turkey closed its border to them, despite calls by the EU to allow the refugees to cross it.

In Turkey have already found shelter more than 2.5 million Syrians, fleeing the war.

Many then went on to Europe where they hope to obtain refugee status. Syrians constitute the majority of over a million refugees, illegal caught in Europe last year.

Europe in turn is sending Turkey mixed signals. On the one hand the EU calls on Turkey to accept people in life-threatening danger, with the other accusing Turkey that she is not doing enough to stem the flood of migrants heading to Europe.

As said Radio «Freedom», German Chancellor Angela Merkel unscheduled arrived today in Ankara to discuss including the question of refugees. She plans to meet with the leadership of Turkey — President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

Earlier, Merkel said the threat to the continued existence of the Schengen zone, if the European Union will not be able to reliably protect its external borders.
