Kerry: US plans military talks with Russia over Syria

The Obama administration is planning direct talks between Russian and American military officials soon over Russia’s military buildup in Syria, a development that has flummoxed the US.

Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters in London that President Barack Obama believes military-to-military discussions with Russia are “an important next step” as the US and its allies seek to resolve a worsening Syria crisis while also trying to understand Russia’s burgeoning role. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov first broached the idea earlier this week in a phone call with Kerry.
