    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia and the United States are close to starting joint operations against terrorists in Syria's Aleppo, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Monday.

    "We are in a very active stage of negotiations with our American colleagues now, both in Geneva and Amman; we are practically in constant talks with Washington. Step by step we are nearing a structure — I'm talking about Aleppo only — that would allow us to truly begin working together so that this territory, this long-suffering region could find peace," Shoigu told Rossiya-24 television.
