Russia: Talks with U.S. won't lead to immediate action

It was the deadliest such incident since a sarin gas attack killed hundreds of people in a rebel-held suburb of Damascus in 2013, prompting threats of USA military action.

Attempts to disrupt the ceasefire in Syria still continue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem on Thursday. -Russian ties from both Trump and Tillerson reflected the former Cold War foes' inability to forge better relations, as Trump until recently has advocated.

The Trump administration has said it already had the authority to conduct last week's missile strikes in Syria in response to the chemical weapons attack there, which gives Republican leaders political cover to argue that a vote on the military action is not necessary.

"Everyone wants to restore relations in the Western community after - thanks to the former United States administration - many European countries adopted an anti-Trump position during the election campaign", he said.

On Wednesday Damascus ally Russian Federation vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution to condemn the attack and push the Syrian government to cooperate with investigators. "Frankly, it's a tactic we've seen on Russia's part as well in the past", Toner told a daily press briefing.

William added: "It's OK to have this conversation, it's really important to have this conversation and that you won't be judged". And he praised her bravery in revealing through an open letter past year that she lives with post-traumatic stress disorder.

"With respect to Russia's complicity or knowledge of the chemical-weapons attack, we have no firm information to indicate that there was any involvement by Russian forces into this attack", Tillerson said.

The shape of these relations will also greatly influence the region, which watches with interest the spar between the two giants pumped up by too much ego and with too many interests vested to make them pliant.

It's suspected that sarin gas was used in an attack on a northern Syrian town at the start of April.

US President Donald Trump's ostensibly dramatic decision to order a missile strike on Syria was not based on his sympathy for victims of last week's suspected gas attack, given his indifference to widespread human rights violations taking place in the US and other nations.

Trump's remarks came after a two-hour meeting between Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State and Russian President Vladimir Putin, in Moscow.

He also rejected American claims of certain evidence that Assad ordered the chemical attack.

Mr Lavrov also said there were "confusing and sometimes openly contradictory ideas" from the Trump administration on the US-Russia relationship and global issues.

President Trump said that the images of the attack's aftermath moved him to act, launching the Tomahawk strike on the airbase from where the United States believes the planes took off to carry out the attack.

During the 2016 United States presidential election campaign, Trump had frequently called for warmer ties with Putin. "They were there", he said.
