MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia is discussing the possibility of holding a summit on Syria with the presidents of Turkey, France and Germany, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.

The Kremlin made the comments after the leaders of Germany and France called Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday to express their concern about the humanitarian situation in Syria’s Idlib region, urging an end to the conflict there.

“The possibility of holding a summit is being discussed. There any no firm decisions about it yet. (But) if all the four leaders deem it necessary, we do not rule out the possibility of such a meeting,” Peskov told reporters on a conference call.
