Kerry: Terms not yet met for US-Russia cooperation in Syria

US Secretary of State John Kerry admitted that the week-long ceasefire had not led to a significant delivery of humanitarian aid and that Russia has not upheld its end of a ceasefire deal which would have seen Moscow and the US set up a military coordination cellThe United States declared Monday that Russia had failed to meet its side of a deal to enforce a seven-day truce in Syria, but that Washington was willing to keep working on it. Under the terms of an agreement struck earlier this month in Geneva, the US military would set up a joint cell with Russian forces to target Syrian jihadists if the ceasefire held. Under the terms of the Geneva agreement, the US was supposed to rein in opposition forces and Moscow was to ensure its ally Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad halt attacks.
