    The future of Syria is being debated between Iran, Russia and Turkey as their leaders meet in Tehran on Friday.

    Prominent on the agenda is the fate of Idlib - the last remaining rebel-held province in Syria - where a major government offensive is expected.

    Turkey, fearing a mass exodus of civilians towards its border, is trying to ensure the offensive will be as limited as possible.
