    The United States is serious about following through on its threat to suspend working with Russia on resolving the conflict in Syria, US Department of State spokesperson John Kirby said at a briefing on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday told Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that the United States was prepared to cease cooperating with Moscow on the ceasefire in Syria.

    “We are very serious about the potential of suspending bilateral engagement with Russia,” Kirby told reporters.
