In a written statement to Al Jazeera, Hami Aksoy, spokesman for the Turkish foreign ministry spokesman, said the report's claims that Syrians have been forcibly returned to their country, threatened and ill-treated were "untrue and imaginary".

"While we are hosting four million Syrian refugees, including 3.6 million Syrians, within our borders, we are studiously implementing our policy of 'non-refoulment'," he said.

"Our authorities has been carrying out the 'repatriating process' in collaboration with the UN refugee agency and other non-governmental organizations. Our country has in every opportunity always stressed that refugee returns should be voluntary, secure and in line with the international law," Hami Aksoy added.
