WASHINGTON - Secretary of State John Kerry expressed US concern in a telephone call on Saturday with his Russian counterpart over reports of Russia's enhanced military build-up in Syria, the State Department said.

"The secretary made clear that if such reports were accurate, these actions could further escalate the conflict, lead to greater loss of innocent life, increase refugee flows and risk confrontation with the anti-ISIL coalition operating in Syria," the department said, using an acronym for Islamic State.

Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov agreed that discussions on the Syrian conflict would continue in New York later this month, the department said.
