US expects agreement with Russia soon on Syria air safety

BOSTON - The United States expects an agreement with Russia's military soon on air safety protocols in the skies above Syria, US Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Tuesday, as the former Cold War foes seek to avoid a clash during their bombing campaigns.
"Our talks there are very professional, they're very constructive, and I expect them to lead in very short order to an agreement," Carter told a news briefing in Boston.
Carter said the next round of talks between the US and Russian militaries will take place on Wednesday.
