Turkey is an important partner in our efforts to counter terrorism globally, including on the subject of Daesh fighters returning from Syria and Iraq. The UK is committed to its security and that of our European partners, and will continue to work closely with them, and with the Turkish Government, to mitigate the threat these individuals may pose.
