Kerry presents proposals on Aleppo in line with Russia’s stance

Rome, Dec 3 (IANS) US Secretary of State John Kerry made suggestions on Aleppo in line with those of Russian experts, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Saturday.

This came as Kerry on Friday met Lavrov here to ease the fighting in the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.

“Moscow is ready to send military experts and diplomats to Geneva to work out joint actions with US in line with the new American proposals,” RT News quoted Lavrov as saying.

“The proposal ensures the withdrawal of all militants without exception from eastern Aleppo, and provide unimpeded humanitarian supplies to the city’s residents and ensure the establishment of normal life,” Lavrov said.

Until Friday, the US had been doing its best to try to “push provisions that would take the heat off Al-Nusra, which directs the militants in the unliberated parts of eastern Aleppo”, he said.
