US Suspends Syria Ceasefire Talks With Russia

The United States has suspended talks of a possible ceasefire in Syria, with Russia. This is coming about a week after Secretary of State John Kerry threatened that the US will pull out of the talks.

The suspension was prompted by allegations of Russia’s role in the continued bombing of Aleppo.

According to John Kirby, the State Department spokesman;

“The United States spared no effort in negotiating and attempting to implement an arrangement with Russia aimed t reducing violence, providing unhindered humanitarian access and degrading terrrorist organizations operating in Syria. Unfortunately, Russia failed to live up to its own commitments”

Russia, it should be recalled has always backed the government of President Bashar al-Assad, while the US supports the opposition. It is as yet unclear what actions the US will take now that the ceasefire discussion has broken down. The Obama administration had hoped on using Syria as a stepping stone to repairing relations with Russia
