Turkey’s attempts to stoke the refugee crisis … a measure of Erdogan’s despair


While economic and political crises surround his country, Erdogan seeks to export these crises to Europe in order to help him out of it with minimal losses and overcome Turkish public anger over his policies.
British writer Con Coughlin said in an article for the British newspaper “Telegraph” that Erdogan believes that he has the right to feel the annoyance of the enormous burden that his country has suffered as a result of hosting refugees, but it shows that Erdogan has seized the price as Europe stood next to him by giving him billions of dollars to host the refugees.
Despite these facts, however, the British writer believes that Erdogan’s exploitation of the refugee crisis in order to force Europe to intervene in his favor in the escalating conflict in Idlib is a reflection of the despair that afflicted the Turkish president.
