1. SOUNDBITE (English) George Stephanopoulos, ABC news journalist: "The ceasefire has seemed to have collapse, can anything be done?"
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary: ++INCLUDES CUTAWAYS OF JOURNALIST++
"On the face of it, it looks satirical that you got attacks going on in Aleppo whilst we're all sitting here having our delectable disputations about ceasefires and all the rest of it, actually I think it's vital that we continue to talk. Any chance at all that the Russians can be persuaded to do the right thing by Syria and the world, call off Assad's troops, stop the carnage and the bombing."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary:
"You know if you look back at what happened in the last two or three years, you look back at the sequence of events in Syria, the decisions of my country of your country, and not to intervene, there's no question we left that door open. We failed somehow to have the imagination to think that was what Putin might do, we've know got to deal with it.
5. SOUNDBITE (English) George Stephanopoulos: "Let's now talk about Brexit, you're probably now foreign secretary because of that vote, is it really going to happen?
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary:
"Yes, it is. Theresa May our Prime Minister has said very clearly that Brexit means Brexit and we're going to make a success of it."
7. SOUNDBITE (English) George Stephanopoulos, ABC news journalist:
"A lot of people look at that vote and they say the themes you emphasise, control of trade, control of our borders, are exactly the themes that Donald Trump is hitting here."
8. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary:
"I think there's a sort of false analogy between Brexit and events in American politics or anywhere else in the world, I don't want to get dragged into the American election. Brexit was about democracy, the problem is our trade policy was handed lock, stock and barrel 43 years ago to the Commission of the European Union so we got a chance to take back control of our WTO schedules in Geneva, our World Trade Organisation, how we run our tariffs, and do deals."
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says it is vital to continue talks in Syria and put an end to the ''carnage and bombings'' in Aleppo.
Johnson spoke on Friday with George Stephanopoulos of ABC's This Week while visiting in New York for the United Nations General Assembly meetings.
Johnson called for intervention by both the UK and US in Syria, urging Russia to call off Assad's troops in the region.
When asked if the UK will follow though with implementing the Brexit referendum, Johnson said the UK is going to make ''a success of it'', while also shooting down any similarities between Johnson's rhetoric to that of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
