From Al Jazeera:

“Russia and the United States are close to reaching an understanding on Syria’s Aleppo, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has said.

“In the past several days an intensive document exchange on the situation in Aleppo has taken place,” Ryabkov was quoted as saying in the Interfax news agency on Thursday.

“We are close to reaching an understanding, but I want to warn against high expectations,” Ryabkov added.

The Kremlin said on Wednesday that a potential US-Russia deal to allow Syrian rebels to safely leave Aleppo was still on the agenda.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov was due to meet US Secretary of State John Kerry in Hamburg later on Thursday after the two diplomats held brief talks on Wednesday.”
