Turkey is facing another refugee exodus as Syrian government forces close in on Idlib, the last rebel held enclave in the country .A summit in Ankara earlier this month attended by the presidents of Turkey, Russia and Iran ended in deadlock over Turkish efforts to end the Idlib siege.

Any new refugee exodus to Turkey could become Europe's problem, as Turkey's president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned he will open his country's borders to return refugees to a safe zone in northern Syria.
