Russia says to start talks with U.S. on Aleppo rebel withdrawal | Reuters

By Ellen Francis, Suleiman Al-Khalidi and Maria Kiselyova | BEIRUT/MOSCOW BEIRUT/MOSCOW The Russian government said on Monday it would start talks with Washington on a rebel withdrawal from Aleppo this week as Russian-backed Syrian forces fought to seize more territory from rebels who are struggling to avoid a major defeat. The latest army attack, which saw fierce clashes around the Old City, aims to cut off another area of rebel control in eastern Aleppo and tighten the noose on opposition-held districts where tens of thousands of people are trapped.Advances in recent weeks have brought Damascus, backed militarily by Russia, Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah, closer to recapturing Syria's second largest city before the nearly six-year war and a prize long sought by President Bashar al-Assad.The rebels are now reduced to an area just kilometres across.While Assad's allies have in the past year turned the battle in his favour, Western and regional states backing the rebels have been unwilling or unable to prevent a major defeat for groups who have fought for years to topple the Syrian leader.Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said talks with the United States on the withdrawal of rebels would begin in Geneva on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning. There was no immediate comment from Washington, which has backed some of the rebels."Those armed groups who refuse to leave eastern Aleppo will be considered to be terrorists," Lavrov told a news conference #France #Russia #markets #United Kingdom #Iraq #fighting #graphics

Fighting erupts in Nagorno-Karabakh, dozens of casualties reported | Reuters

BAKU/YEREVAN A new wave of fighting broke out in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region on Saturday, killing at least a dozen servicemen and drawing international calls for an immediate ceasefire to stop violence spreading in the South Caucasus. Nagorno-Karabakh, which lies inside Azerbaijan but is controlled by ethnic Armenians, has run its own affairs with heavy military and financial backing from Armenia since a separatist war ended in 1994. The Azeri defence ministry said on Saturday the army had "liberated strategic heights and settlements" in the region #United States #Business #Europe #Christianity #fighting
