ATHENS, Greece: Turkey says it is concerned about a possible new refugee influx from Syria due to Russia’s military campaign there.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Tanju Bilgic told reporters on Friday however, that Turkey was taking the “necessary precautions” to deal with the possible influx.

Turkey is currently hosting 2.2 million refugees from Syria and 300,000 Iraqis, making it the world’s biggest refugee host.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey has so far spent $7.8 billion hosting the refugees.
