US Secretary of State John Kerry has warned his Russian counterpart that Washington will end Syria talks unless Moscow stops the bombing of Aleppo.

The US state department said it was making preparations to suspend talks.

In response to Kerry's phone call, the Russian Deputy Ambassador to the UN, said the "trend" of Russia being blamed for the attacks in Syria must stop.
