MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov complained on Monday that Syrian militants had used temporary cease-fires in fighting in and around Aleppo to regroup and rearm.

Lavrov, speaking at a news conference in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg with his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier, said he realized that brief daily cease-fires in place now to allow aid to enter and civilians to leave were not sufficient.

But he said it was difficult to make the cease-fires longer for the moment because of the risk of militants using them to regroup and rearm, something he said they had done in the past.
