The number of Syrian refugees in Turkey has nearly doubled over the past two months to more than 80,000 and this weekend Turkey begun temporarily holding thousands of people on the border while they scrambled to erect shelters.

“We will emphasise that this burden now needs to be shared by the whole international community, not just by Syria’s neighbours,” he said.

Davutoglu said last week Turkey could run out of space if the number went above 100,000 and suggested the United Nations may need to create a “safe zone” inside Syria.
