The US strike was condemned by Russia, Syria's ally in its civil war, which said that the strike would worsen the relations between the countries. "The world's two foremost nuclear powers can not have this relationship", he said.

"The United Kingdom therefore shares the U.S. assessment that it is highly likely that the regime was responsible for a sarin attack on Khan Sheikhoun on April 4", Mr Rycroft said. It was stark evidence that the president is moving ever further from his campaign promises to establish better ties with Moscow.

Trump's comments on the state of U.S. "It'd be a fantastic thing if we got along with Putin and if we got along with Russian Federation, and that could happen, and it may not happen; it may be just the opposite".

"When you get into the gases, especially that form, it's vicious and violent", he said. But he clearly wasn't counting on it.

The United States wants to improve ties with Russian Federation from their current "all-time low" over Syria, President Donald Trump said Wednesday, as Moscow dug in to defend its ally in Damascus.

The Raptors aren't listing anyone as out right now, but DeMar DeRozan is battling an illness and listed as questionable. Robin Lopez scored 18 points and Jimmy Butler and Jerian Grant had 17 apiece to pace the Bulls.

The toxic gas attack on April 4 prompted the U.S. to launch missile strikes on a Syrian air base and widened a rift between United States and Russian relations. Trump said it was "certainly possible" though "probably unlikely".

They include - as Tillerson mentioned in Moscow - a United States belief that Russian hackers and propagandists interfered in the USA presidential election.

Undaunted by Russia's veto, Trump called on United States allies to "work together to resolve the disaster" in Syria and thanked them for condemning Assad's suspected sarin attack in the town of Khan Sheikhun, which killed 87 civilians.

Mr Johnson said: "The global community sought to make clear that any use of chemical weapons by anyone anywhere is unacceptable and that those responsible will face consequences".

The intensive diplomatic action comes as the UN Security Council is set to vote on a draft resolution drawn up by the US, Britain and France calling on the Syrian regime to co-operate with a probe into the chemical weapons attack. He likened the USA response in bombing a Syrian air base to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, arguing that now just as then Washington relied on false data about chemical weapons.

Pence's visit, full of Cold War symbolism, came amid increasing tensions and heated rhetoric on the Korean Peninsula. The Trump administration is hoping that China will help rein in North Korea in exchange for other considerations.

At that briefing, the official also noted, "We know the Russians have chemical expertise in-country". Russia wants the U.S.to eliminate sanctions on Moscow related to its 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region and support for pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Since September 2015, the Russian air force has been carrying out air strikes in Syria at the request of the Syrian regime's President Bashar Al-Assad. "We are ready to help bring this conflict to an end", Haley told the UN Security Council.

During his campaign, then President-elect Donald Trump pledged that he would have a much better relationship with Russian Federation than President Barack Obama had.

During Tillerson's visit to Moscow on Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov gave the top US diplomat an earful of criticism over the USA strike. "Frankly, it's a tactic we've seen on Russia's part as well in the past", Toner told a daily press briefing. "I think it is wonderful they abstained", he said.
