US warns Russia over support for Syrian government

US Secretary of State John Kerry has told Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov that Moscow’s “continued support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad risks exacerbating and extending the conflict” in the country.
Kerry made the comments on Tuesday in his third phone call to Lavrov in the past 10 days, a US state department official said, seeking to clarify the intent of Russia’s military build-up in Syria.
The call came shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin defended his military assistance to Assad’s government and said it was impossible to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant without cooperating with Damascus and urged other countries to join the cause.
