MOSCOW- Russian officers monitoring a ceasefire near the city of Aleppo confirmed the Syrian army was ready to withdraw from positions along the Castello Road if it was synchronized with opposition forces, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday.

"Thus, there is de facto just one side in Aleppo which is ready to lead negotiations, observe the ceasefire and pull back troops from the UN humanitarian aid passage - this is the Syrian government army," the ministry said in a statement.

It said the United States had failed to prove it had control over moderate opposition fighters, and it remained unclear if these forces would abide by the ceasefire.
