BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday she agreed with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan to aim for holding a four-way meeting in October to discuss the situation of the rebel-held Syrian region of Idlib.

“We also talked about Idlib and we will talk in more depth tomorrow. We are in favour of there being a four way meeting between the Turkish president, the Russian President, the French president and me,” Merkel said in a joint news conference with Erdogan in Berlin.
