On Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, affirmed that the United States have said that it is revoking its proposals of December 2 concerning the withdrawal of militants from eastern Aleppo, while Washington’s new proposals would let the extremists take a break. Lavrov stated that all attempts at starting a serious discussion with the United States over Syria had proved futile. According to Russian Foreign Minister, the USA are currently working on an alternative plan for the city. At a rendezvous with Lavrov in Rome on December Kerry called for Russian-US consultations on eastern Aleppo. Washington’s initiative came against the background of the Syrian army’s successes in the struggle against extremists in the city. Kerry’s proposals envisaged coordination of dates and routes for the militants’ pullout from eastern Aleppo. It was expected that Russian and US experts were to enter into consultations over Kerry’s initiative in Geneva on 6th or 7th December. He said the Wednesday consultations are canceled at this point. Lavrov also added that there is nothing to be rejected. A Russian-US agreement has not been formalized yet. Anyway, “those who will refuse to leave of their own accord will be wiped out. There is no other solution”.
