If Aleppo operation is ruse, could hurt US-Russia cooperation: Kerry

If Russia’s humanitarian operation for Aleppo is a ruse, it risks completely disrupting cooperation between the United States and Russia on a political solution to end the Syrian civil war, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday.

“It has the risk, if it is a ruse, of completely breaking apart the … cooperation,” he said in response to a reporter’s question.

“On the other hand, if we’re able to work it out today and have a complete understanding of what is happening and then agreement on (the) way forward, it could actually open up some possibilities.”
