Turkey cares about the people, not the oil and will never force the persecuted refugees to return to Syria, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday (November 18), as he criticized the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP)'s stance regarding migrants.

Speaking at the 2nd International Ombudsman Conference in Istanbul, Erdogan reassured Syrians who sought refuge in Turkey that the country will not force them to go back, contrary to CHP's insistence to do so.

"Turkey will never force persecuted people who fled barrel bombs in Syria to go back," Erdogan said, adding that Turkey cares about the people, not the oil.

He noted that some countries are in the "process of sharing the oil reserves" in Syria and have offered Turkey to be a partner, but Ankara refused because it is not interested in the country's resources.

Erdogan reiterated once again that Turkey is hosting 4 million Syrian refugees and has received 3 billion euros in assistance from the European Union.
