Syrian intake focused on Christians

Treasurer Scott Morrison says Australia's special intake of 12,000 Syrian refugees is focused on resettling persecuted minorities which are overwhelmingly Christian.

The former immigration minister says resettlement arrangements have not changed since the intake was announced under the Abbott government in September last year.

"The reason for that is simple, those minorities can never go back to that part of the world," Mr Morrison told Ray Hadley on 2GB radio on Tuesday.
