European Union: Turkey is making great efforts towards refugees


The head of the European Union delegation to Turkey, Ambassador Nicholas Mayer-Landrut, said that Turkey is making great efforts towards refugees at all levels.


This came in his speech on Tuesday during his participation in the opening of the “Abdulkadir Ataş” primary school in the state of Gaziantep.

Which was built within the framework of the “Education for All in Times of Crisis” project in cooperation with the Turkish Ministry of Education and the European Union.

“Turkey is already making great efforts on refugees at all levels, people, municipalities, and government,” Landrut said.

He added that to date, 700,000 Syrian students have been integrated into the Turkish education system, noting that this is a success for Turkey and the European Union.

He noted that the European Union is continuing education projects in Turkey, supporting expenditures for operating schools and training teachers across the country with a budget of 1.4 billion euros.


Landrut thanked the Turkish government, especially the Ministry of Education, for its cooperation, wishing students and teachers to succeed.
