U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will meet his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov and other key partners in Switzerland on Saturday in yet another effort to find a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Syria, as a devastating bombing campaign of the city of Aleppo intensified, according to Reuters.

"We are certainly working through a variety of diplomatic channels to try to reduce the violence inside of Syria, and that's necessarily going to include some Russian participation," – White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Wednesday.

A second international meeting will take place on October 17 in London that will not include Russia.

The October 16 meeting will be the first between the two sides since Washington broke off bilateral diplomatic contact with Moscow this month following the collapse of a cease-fire in Syria.
