French President Francois Hollande said Thursday that he will urge a special EU summit next week to ask Turkey to keep Syrian refugees on its soil until the neighbouring country's war ends.
The European Union must "work with Turkey" in order to "ensure that those who are in Turkey can stay there, work there and have all the resources they need to wait until the situation in Syria is resolved", Hollande told reporters in Modena, Italy, after holding talks with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
