US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov discussed the possibility of cease-fires in parts of Syria, Kerry said on Monday after talks in Paris.

Lavrov said the two also discussed a possible willingness by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to open aid corridors.

"We talked today about the possibility of trying to encourage a cease-fire. Maybe a localized cease-fire in Aleppo," Kerry told a news conference after talks with Lavrov and UN envoy Lakhdar Brahimi in Paris.
