Merkel, Erdogan urge UN action on Syrian refugee plight
German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Tuesday after talks with the visiting Turkish prime minister for a more united UN Security Council response to the "inconceivable" humanitarian plight of Syrian refugees.


Talks with Russia and China should be held as well as with non-Security Council member Iran to help people fleeing the nearly three-year-old conflict, Merkel told a joint press conference with Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan. (AFP)
