75 Percent of Syrian Migrants Say They Will Stay in Netherlands for Life


A survey has revealed that around three-quarters of the Syrians who travelled to the Netherlands as asylum seekers have no plans to ever return to their country.

The survey of 848 Syrian nationals residing in the Netherlands was taken by current affairs TV programme EenVandaag and found that the vast majority said they would not consider returning due to the danger and insecurity in the country, WNL reports.

Even though the Islamic State terror group has been almost totally wiped out by the coalition, those surveyed said they still did not want to return, citing fear of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The 75 percent said that regardless of what happens to Syria in the future they have no plans to ever go back and wish to remain in the Netherlands for the rest of their lives, arguing that they have better access to work and to freedom of expression.
