NATO praises Turkeys hospitality to war victims

A top NATO leader on April 14 praised Turkey's hospitality in taking in and protecting war victims and Syrian refugees.       

"The level of hospitality Turkey demonstrated to refugees, that is a huge lesson in humanity," Madeleine Moon, president of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (PA), said on the last day of a NATO meeting in Antalya on the Turkish Mediterranean.       

Turkey currently hosts almost 4 million registered refugees- including nearly 3.6 million Syrians, more than any other country in the world.       

Moon, in her closing speech at the meeting, also thanked Osman Aşkın Bak, an MP from Turkey's ruling AKP, for organizing a soccer match between Syrian refugee children and NATO PA members on April 13.

"This was a most amazing evening organized by @OA_Bak so much fun for everyone your generosity towards the children was outstanding #NATOPA #Syrian #refugechildren #sportunitesus #semantalya," Moon wrote on Twitter.
