MOSCOW, December 4. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel a possible new summit on Syria between Russia, Turkey, Germany and France, Kremlin Aide Yury Ushakov told reporters on Tuesday.
"We agreed with Erdogan and Merkel that if needed another forum may be convened with the participation of Putin, Erdogan, Merkel and [French President Emmanuel] Macron," Ushakov said. Speaking on the venue of this summit, he said it could be held in other city than Istanbul. "That’s because the leaders probably won’t wish to meet in Istanbul all the time."
According to the Kremlin aide, the particular venue would be agreed on simultaneously with discussing the date. "There is only preliminary readiness of the three countries’ leaders for this meeting," he noted.
Putin did not discuss this issue with Macron of late, Uskakov added.
