Lavrov and Kerry discuss situation in east Aleppo - ministry

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry discussed the situation in east Aleppo by phone on Wednesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Lavrov told Kerry the Syrian government had long been prepared to provide a safe withdrawal for militants leaving Aleppo but opposition fighters had refused a ceasefire, the ministry said.
