 ANKARA - Russian and Turkish officials will hold a meeting on Wednesday in Turkey to assess the situation in Syria's Aleppo, a senior Turkish official told Reuters, after the Syrian army and its allies took full control of districts abandoned by rebels.

The possibility of opening a corridor to evacuate rebels and civilians and the setting up of a ceasefire will be discussed at the meeting, the official said on Tuesday.

Turkey was continuing its efforts with the United States, as well as Iran, the European Union and Gulf countries to help evacuate opposition fighters from Aleppo, the official added.
