U.S. urges Russia to be 'constructive partner' on ending Syrian conflict

TORONTO (Reuters) - The United States on Monday called on Moscow to stop creating impediments to peace in Syria and to be a “constructive partner” to ending the seven-year conflict.

“Russia must be a constructive partner in Syria or will be held accountable,” acting U.S. Secretary of State John Sullivan told a news conference at the end of a two-day meeting of Group of Seven foreign ministers in Toronto.
