The US and Russian military will hold talks to avoid coming into conflict during their respective air strikes in Syria, US Secretary of State John Kerry said.

Speaking after a joint press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the UN Headquarters yesterday(30), both diplomats agreed their militaries should talk as soon as possible.

This comes after Russian-led air strikes in Syria targeted areas it claims are held by Islamic State (IS) militants. However, the US, France and Nato have expressed concerns that the Russian strikes targeted opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is a Russian ally.
