Turkey rescues 92 asylum seekers expelled by Greece

Turkey rescued a total of 92 asylum seekers driven by Greece into Turkish waters. This was conveyed by the Turkish Coast Guard Command, on Thursday.

"Coast guard teams rescued asylum seekers in rubber boats at three locations off the coast of Dikili and Cesme districts in Izmir province," he said.


All asylum seekers were transferred to the provincial migration office. Turkey and human rights groups have repeatedly condemned Greece's illegal practice of pushing back asylum seekers. This action violates human values ​​and international law.

In addition, these actions endanger the lives of vulnerable migrants, including women and children. Turkey has become a major transit point for asylum seekers looking to cross into Europe to start a new life, especially those fleeing war and persecution.

Turkey already hosts 4 million refugees, more than any other country in the world, and is taking new security measures at its borders to humanely prevent the entry of new migrants.
