The spokesman for Turkey's Justice and Development (AK) Party on Thursday praised the country’s policy on migration management.

"Our citizens, who have rightfully expressed their concerns about Turkey's demographic security, should know that this issue is being followed. We are highly sensitive about Turkey's demographic security," said Ömer Çelik during an AK Party Central Decision and Executive Board meeting chaired by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Turkey's policy on migration management

Çelik decried recent provocations against Turkey over the issue of migration, saying, “Turkey has both experience and a policy on migration management. The country is effectively fighting against irregular migration.”

'Effective security measures'

“On the one hand, Turkey is making efforts to solve the problem at its source. On the other hand, effective security measures are taken at the border,” he said.

Çelik noted that Turkey always has a policy that takes into account its demographic security, adding that efforts are underway to send asylum seekers to their countries voluntarily and with dignity.
