GENEVA 

Turkey’s foreign minister said on Monday that there is an urgent need for expanding third country solutions to have “more equitable burden share” of refugees.

“More equitable burden and responsibility sharing are key to help refugees and refugee-hosting countries. It will be the most important message out of the Global Refugee Forum. I believe,” said Mevlut Cavusoglu said in Geneva, Switzerland.

His remarks came during a panel titled The Syrian Refugee Crisis – Delivering in Partnership.

The panel was held on the first day of the three-day Global Refugee Forum.
