The Syrian and Syrian American communities have a long history of friendship with Türkiye, and we are eternally grateful for the generosity the Turkish people have shown towards the 4 million Syrian refugees that they have hosted over the last decade. We empathize with Türkiye’s current economic and security challenges. However, refugees are not political pawns, and Türkiye must continue to protect Syrian refugees’ right to a safe and voluntary return. After years of war crimes against the Syrian people and enabling the conditions for terrorism to flourish, the regime cannot be trusted to be a credible partner in any joint security or counter-terrorism efforts
