The new round of discussions on Syria on Monday in New York follows the Istanbul summit held late last week, where Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel met to discuss the Syrian conflict.

The four leaders, in an official statement, noted that the political process must be "inclusive, Syrian-led and Syrian-owned," and stressed the UN's role as a facilitator while calling for the active participation of Syrian parties.
