Washington is taking a look at the Russian announcement of humanitarian corridors in Syria's Aleppom, but remains skeptical, according to White House spokesperson Eric Schultz.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The United States remains doubtful about Russia's humanitarian initiative in Syria, White House spokesperson Eric Schultz said in a briefing on Friday.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Thursday that Moscow and Damascus had launched a joint large-scale humanitarian relief operation in Aleppo, establishing three corridors for civilians and one for militants wishing to lay down arms.

"The United States is deeply concerned about the situation in Aleppo," Schultz stated. "We are taking a look at the Russian announcement of humanitarian corridors, but given their record on this, we are skeptical."
