MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia and the United States have moved closer to agreement on a document setting rules for how to keep U.S. and Russian aircraft from clashing over Syria, Interfax news agency reported on Wednesday, citing the Russian Defense Ministry.

Military experts from Russia and the United States, which back opposing sides in Syria's civil war, held their third talks aimed at setting rules for air-to-air conduct over the country.

"A convergence of positions on key issues of the future document has been noted," Interfax quoted a statement from the ministry as saying.
