MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry discussed by phone Moscow’s proposals for joint operations against militants who do not observe a ceasefire in Syria, the ministry said on Monday.

Last week, Russia proposed to the U.S.-led coalition that they stage joint air strikes on Syrian rebels, including militant Islamist group Nusra Front. Washington responded coolly.
