RUSSIA SAYS A FEW STEPS AWAY FROM “BIG DEAL” ON SYRIA’S ALEPPO

TEHRAN, Iran - A major agreement is imminent, on settling the situation in Syria's Aleppo, the visiting Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergei Ryabkov, told Iranian Tasnim news agency on Wednesday.

"We are a couple of steps away from what I hope, would be a ground-breaking deal, on resolving the particular situation around Aleppo," Ryabkov said.

"Our (Russian and American) military officials, will meet again in the next few hours, to finalise the deal. We are not there yet," he said, without elaborating on the ongoing talks between the two world powers.

Ryabkov arrived in Tehran on an official visit Wednesday, to meet with senior Iranian officials, including Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs, Abbas Araqchi, to discuss topics of mutual interest.
