MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday that Moscow is ready to consider additional ways to normalize the situation in the Syrian city of Aleppo, the ministry said.

Lavrov told Kerry over the phone that the ceasefire agreement brokered by Moscow and Washington had been violated numerous times in eastern parts of Aleppo by forces led by the group formerly known as the Nusra Front, the Russian foreign ministry added.Lavrov told Kerry that Washington's failure to separate terrorists groups from the moderate opposition in Syria, had allowed Nusra to "hide behind other armed groups of the opposition with which Washington is cooperating," the ministry said.
