US renews interest in Moscow's involvement in Syria as crisis worsens

US secretary of state John Kerry said Washington is planning direct talks with Russian military officials over Moscow's growing involvement in Syria.

He said president Barack Obama believes such discussions are an important next step as the US and its allies seek to resolve a worsening crisis.

The Pentagon will take the lead in the discussions but the exact level, venue and timing have yet to be determined.

Most military talks with Moscow were suspended after Russia annexed the Crimea region of Ukraine.
