Turkey will send captured Daesh/ISIS members back to Europe, where they came from, said the Turkish interior minister on Tuesday.

Suleyman Soylu criticized Belgium officials’ suggestion that trials of Daesh/ISIS members should be where the crimes were committed.

“Europe is applying double standards, as it has always done,” he added.
