UN-Arab League special envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi visited Tuesday (September 18th) Syrian refugees in a Turkish camp on the border with Syria, AFP reported.
The visit was Brahimi's first official encounter with some of the thousands of Syrian refugees who have fled the violence in their country.
Brahimi met with representatives of the 1,300 refugees at Altinozu camp in Hatay city.
Turkish officials were expected to brief the special envoy on the condition of the refugees and their needs. The Turkish government had said it will need international support to maintain its current level of aid.
Turkey is already home to some 83,000 registered refugees in several camps in the southeast region bordering Syria, but has said it can handle no more than 100,000 refugees.
