Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson discussed the humanitarian aid to Idlib, the last rebel-held stronghold in Syria, said the state-run Anadolu agency.

The possible joint measures against the outbreak of the novel coronavirus were also on the agenda of the leaders, according to Anadolu.

Additionally, the leaders addressed the situation of illegal immigrants on the border of Turkey and Greece, it added.

Thousands of illegal immigrants flocked to Turkey's northwestern border province of Edirne after the Turkish government said it would no longer keep them from going to Europe.

The summit between the leaders was supposed to be held in Istanbul, but cancelled because of the spread of the coronavirus
