Orban in phone talks with Erdogan on migration situation

Prime Minister Viktor Orban held talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan by phone before convening a meeting of his security cabinet, the PM’s press chief said on Friday.

Orban and Erdogan discussed the latest developments in the fighting in Syria and the migration situation in the region, Bertalan Havasi said. Erdogan told Orban that Turkey could no longer contain all of the displaced Syrians it had taken in.
