Syrian refugees

7th September 2015

Following the Prime Minister’s statement on Syrian refugees, Jonathan Djanogly highlights the need to tackle both Daesh and Assad’s regime before the flow of refugees will recede.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con): For clarification, is my right hon. Friend saying that in the event of the destruction of Daesh the flow of refugees from Syria is unlikely to recede unless we also see the end of Assad’s regime?

The Prime Minister: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. It is difficult to get precise figures, but a number of people have left Syria because of Assad’s brutality and a number of people have left because of ISIL’s brutality. That is why the movement of refugees has been so great and why it is wrong to say that we need to choose between two evils. We need to get rid of both of them.
