"Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told nations opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that the U.S. would not cooperate militarily with Russia until it stopped labeling all Assad's opponents as terrorists, a Western diplomat said on Friday. 'In the discussion, he made it clear that there would not be military cooperation until the Russians accepted that not all the opposition are terrorists,' the diplomat said."

So. America will continue its adversarial policy toward Russia until Russia cedes Crimea and stops opposing America's intervention in Syria. Russia must accept Syrian opposition as legitimate, discontinue interference, and not regard opposition as terrorists, despite that they're engaging in politically motivated violence, the definition of "terrorism." Despite that the opposition is US-backed and working to secure American interests, where Russia has strategic reasons to counter, and no sufficiently meaningful incentive not to.

Too much Kool-Aid drinking. I can hardly understand how people of stature can be so obtuse.

It is a message which we shall expect.
Basicly Assad shall focus on terroist (isil al nursa) not on opositions.
Al nursa units left Aleppo before FSA umits. We need to remeber that oposition didn't want to leave Aleppo because Assad ask them to go to territory occupay by al nursa......

Meanwhile in Syria many reports of airstrikes, despite "Astana ceasefire", with Russia deploying more new equipment

Those demands are unrealistic in terms of at least coming to a compromise.
