A top NATO official on Friday praised Turkey's hospitality towards refugees and hard work in the Middle East.

I pay tribute particularly to the Turkish role in providing refuge of millions of people who have been displaced by the terror conflict in Syria, Madeleine Moon, head of the NATO Parliament Assembly, told a meeting in the Mediterranean Antalya province.

Moon said Turkey "sees itself as a bridge between Europe and Middle East" which gives it a "leading role in promoting security and stability" in the Mideast and North Africa region.

Moon stressed there would be an international refugee crisis without the remarkable generosity and hospitality which Turkey has shown to the Syrian people.

She also said Turkey is often at the forefront of the challenges emerging in the Mideast, adding that NATO shows solidarity with Turkey by providing critical support and assistance.

I want to take the opportunity to thank the Turkish government and parliament for their contributions to NATO and the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, she added.

Osman Askin Bak, the head of the Turkish delegation to the assembly, said Turkey is the third-biggest country in the region supporting NATO with its personnel numbering nearly 2,000.

Syrian children are our children, he said.

We want them to forget difficult scenes and prepare them for a beautiful future.
