Up to 40,000 refugees have settled in camps on the Turkish border inside Syria in the latest wave of migration, a Turkish deputy prime minister said on Friday, as attacks by Russian-backed Syrian government forces send tens of thousands fleeing. A diplomatic initiative with Russia and Syria is needed to prevent further waves of migration that would also impact Europe, Yalcin Akdogan told reporters near the border at Oncupinar, in comments broadcast live by TRT television. "In the last week there has been a new wave of migration, notably because of the Russian bombardment and 35,000 to 40,000 people have flowed to the Turkish border," he said.

The decision taken by ministers over Greek objections is the culmination of weeks of pressure on Greece, the main gateway for the one million refugees and migrants who entered Europe last year in the continent's biggest such crisis since World War II. A report last month from the European Commission, the EU executive, found that Greece was failing to properly register and fingerprint migrants when inspections were carried out at the Turkish land border and several islands in the Aegean Sea last November.
