"No one has canceled it and no one has exited these agreements. The contacts are constant. Lavrov speaks with John Kerry almost daily," Bogdanov said.

On September 9, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State Kerry announced a new peace plan to address the conflict. The ceasefire deal was later shattered by numerous violations, which resulted in intensified fighting between the Syrian government and militants in Aleppo.

On Monday, the US State Department announced it was suspending bilateral channels with Russia that were established to sustain a cessation of hostilities agreement in Syria. Russia responded with suspending a number of agreements with the United States including those on cooperation in scientific research and development in nuclear and energy sectors and the plutonium disposal agreement.
