MOSCOW, September 23. /TASS/. Turkey has not turned to Russia with the question of Syrian refugees, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.

"We discuss all aspects of the Syrian crisis, and the fact that there are refugees in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon has always been the center of attention in many international humanitarian organizations," Lavrov told journalists.

"They [refugees] receive aid under the United Nations’ World Food Program, the Children's Fund and from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees," Lavrov said.

"But no one has specifically turned to us [with questions related to refugees]," he said, adding that this was an aspect highlighting the urgency of measures to eliminate the terrorism threat and reach a political settlement.
