10:03 pm
the burden of this migration all alone yet it gets you cheated the negative effects of this pressure on us will be an issue felt by all european countries especially greece has done over is it about $3700000.00 syrian refugees are already living in turkey in difficult conditions. but most have come to terms with their situation and see no other option. it seems we can't endure living through the bomb attacks we have no relatives left in syria. safety for the civilian population is just one of many problems the international community has yet to solve last friday at the un security council could not even agree to an extension of the program russia and china blocked humanitarian assistance for the time being many syrian refugees will remain near the turkish border region. oh earlier i spoke with the multiverse and mid east to alice

10:05 pm
