NEW YORK, Sept 22 The United States and Russia
failed to agree on how to revive a ceasefire in Syria on
Thursday as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Washington
cannot be the only one trying to hold open the door to peace and
urged Russia and the Syrian government to do their part.
"If the Russians come back to us with constructive proposals
we will listen," Kerry said after a meeting of the International
Syria Support Group on the sidelines of the annual U.N.
gathering of world leaders.
"Make no mistake, the United States will continue to pursue
every avenue of progress that we can because it is the only way
to stop the killing, it is the only way to ease the suffering
and it's the only way to make possible the restoration of a
united Syria," Kerry said.
