Turkey is the "best example for world on how to treat refugees," says EU's Tusk

Banner Icon European Council head Donald Tusk heaped high praise on Turkey for its reception of Syrian refugees on Saturday, saying the country served as "the best example" in the world on caring for those fleeing war.

"Today Turkey is the best example for the whole world (on) how we should treat refugees," he said at a press conference following a visit with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to a refugee centre in the country.

"This is not only a political and formal assessment... this is also my very private and personal feeling," he said.
