Turkey is to grant work permits to Syrian refugees, an official statement said Friday, in a key move which could allow Syrians to build more prosperous and stable lives in the country.It did not specify nationality, but the measure chiefly applies to the over 2.2 million Syrians who have fled the almost five-year conflict for the safety of Turkey, as well as some 300,000 Iraqis.Rights activists have long pressed Turkey to grant work permits to refugees -- most of them working illegally and for very minimal wages -- to allow then to build better lives in the country.
