All three leaders are expected to hold one-on-one meetings before the summit.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will host his Russian and Iranian counterparts on Monday for their latest summit on Syria , with attention focused on Damascus's push on the last rebel-held bastion of Idlib . Presidents Vladimir Putin and Hassan Rouhani will join Erdogan in the Turkish capital

But with Assad's position looking increasingly secure, Turkey's priority has shifted to preventing a mass influx of refugees from Idlib in Syria's northwest.

But the posts look increasingly threatened, with one of them cut off from the rest of Idlib when Syrian forces advanced last month.

That would give Putin a political win to add to its military victories, said Dareen Khalifa, senior Syria analyst at International Crisis Group.

All three leaders are expected to hold one-on-one meetings before the summit, the Kremlin said.

It has repeatedly threatened to launch a cross-border offensive against Syrian Kurdish forces, whom it sees as allied to Kurdish militants in its own territory.
