Kremlin says possible deal to let rebels leave Aleppo still on agenda
The Kremlin said on Wednesday that a potential US-Russia deal to allow Syrian rebels to safely leave Aleppo was still on the agenda, but that no talks were planned between the two countries for now.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call that Russian and US experts were in contact about Syria. Very few rebels had quit Aleppo so far, said Peskov, who described those who were left there as “terrorists” who were uniting around former Nusra Front fighters.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will meet US Secretary of State John Kerry in Hamburg on Wednesday, Russian news agencies reported.
