    Russia and the United States are discussing the possibility of introducing a new humanitarian pause in Syria’s Aleppo, as well as the fight against terrorists in the country, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – According to Bogdanov, Moscow hopes that Russia and the United States manage to resolve the situation in Aleppo.

    "These issues are being discussed now, because everything is related not only to the humanitarian pause but also to understanding what we will do at the same in the fight against terrorists," Bogdanov told reporters.
