BELEK, Turkey: Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Monday warned against conflating the migration crisis facing Europe with the threat from global terrorism, saying to do so would be to avoid a humanitarian responsibility.

Speaking after a summit of the G20 leading economies in Turkey, Erdogan also said an agreement reached by foreign ministers in Vienna on a potential political transition in Syria was a “hopeful step forward” but that President Bashar al-Assad should have no place in the country’s future.
