Turkey's state-run news agency says British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has arrived near Turkey's border with Syria where he is scheduled to visit a camp for Syrian refugees.

Anadolu Agency says Johnson arrived in the Turkish city of Gaziantep Monday and will continue to the nearby town of Nizip where he will inspect the camp.

Johnson is on a three-day visit to Turkey and is later expected to travel to Ankara for talks with Turkish officials, including Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The visit is Johnson's first to Turkey as foreign secretary.

In May, the former mayor of London won a British magazine prize for writing a vulgar poem mocking Erdogan.

Turkey is home to an estimated 3 million refugees.
