US Calls Off Syria Peace Talks With Russia

US Calls Off Syria Peace Talks With RussiaThe U.S. government announced today that it is suspending all Syrian peace talks with Russia over frustrations with Moscow and its inability to live up to commitments to a cease-fire agreement. “There is nothing more for the United States and Russia to talk about,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said today of negotiations to end the 5-year Syrian civil war. The announcement comes two weeks after the most recent attempt at a cease-fire fell apart in dramatic fashion when a humanitarian aid convoy trying to reach besieged areas of rebel-held Aleppo was destroyed by an airstrike.
