Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has stated that Ankara would go ahead with the deportation of Daesh terrorists regardless of whether home countries will accept them, APA reports citing Sputnik.

“Who stayed on the border there, which country did receive their [Daesh] militants and which one did fail to do so - we don’t care. We will continue to deport them”, Erdogan told reporters in Ankara on Tuesday.

The statement comes after Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu pledged earlier this month that Ankara would send Daesh militants it has seized back to their home countries.

The minister also said that Ankara won't accept Europe's inaction on the issue of Daesh prisoners when Turkey is left alone to deal with them.
