Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on Tuesday said that they received information from Turkish citizens about difficulties encountered after entering Syria for various reasons.
In a written statement released on Tuesday, the MFA said that they felt a need to issue a strong travel warning on Syria for Turkish citizens due to the problems experienced by Turkish citizens in Syria.
We had indicated recently that travelling by land in Syria posed threats to Turkish citizens and brought security concerns. Unless a must, we recommend that Turkish citizens do not travel by land in Syria. We advice Turkish citizens in Syria to return to Turkey, the MFA stressed in its statement.
We have learned that Turkish citizens who had to enter Syria met with serious problems. Accordingly, we strongly advice that Turkish citizens do not travel to Syria, the MFA added.
