ROME - The United States would prefer that Russia not sell weapons to Syria and has in the past opposed the transfer of missile systems to the country because it is considered a threat to Israel, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday.

Speaking during a news conference in Rome, Kerry did not specifically comment on a report that Russia was poised to sell new advanced ground-to-air missiles to the Syrian regime now engaged in a bloody civil war.
