Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday that migration regulations between Turkey and the European Union were not working and needed to be revised, the Turkish presidency said.

In a phone call, Erdogan also told Merkel that a ceasefire agreement with Russia in Syria’s Idlib region aimed to protect civilians and Turkish troops there. Ankara had opened the gates to Europe for the nearly 4 million migrants it hosts after an escalation of clashes in Idlib.
