MOSCOW, October 1. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday.
The parties continued discussion of the situation in Syria, including opportunities for normalization of the situation in Aleppo, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
"Heads of the foreign services continued discussion of the situation in Syria, including opportunities for normalization of the situation in Aleppo, where illegal armed groups, despite of the Russian-American agreements on cessation of fire by the conflicting sides, continue fighting. Many groups of the "moderate" Syrian opposition refuse to dissociate themselves from Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists, which are not subject to the cease-fire," the statement said.
The conversation was initiated by the United States.
