No: 284, 22 August 2021, Press Release Regarding The Reference Made To Turkey In The Uk Press In The Context Of Asylum Processing Centers To Be Established In The Third Countries For Afghan Asylum-seekers

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 23.08.2021

The news in the UK press concerning that there are plans to establish an asylum processing center for Afghan asylum-seekers in Turkey do not reflect the truth.

No official request has been conveyed to us from any country up until today. Should there be such a request, we would not accept it anyway.
