Russian President Vladimir Putin met his German counterpart Angela Merkel at the four-way summit on Syria in Istanbul on Saturday.

The summit, which is the first of its kind, takes place after Russia and Turkey reached a deal on September 17 to create a demilitarised buffer zone around the region of Idlib, which is home to 3.5 million people, in an attempt to prevent further fighting in the last major militant-held bastion in the country.
