Russia: US did not violate red lines during Syria strikes

Russia: US did not violate red lines during Syria strikes

Following the US-led bombardment of Syria last week over an alleged chemical attack by Damascus, Russia says it has no reason to not supply its S-300 missile system to Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

General Kenneth McKenzie, director of the USA military's Joint Staff, said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime retains a "residual" chemical capability at a variety of sites across the country.

Lavrov was also quoted as saying that, prior to the US strikes on Syrian targets, Russian Federation had told USA officials which areas of Syria represented "red lines" for Moscow, and the US military action did not cross those lines.

Trump telephoned Putin on March 20 to congratulate him on winning the Russian presidential election two days earlier.

It was the first meeting between Bolton, who started at the White House this month, and Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov, the administration said in a statement. This is likely because both British and French officials portrayed the attacks as intending to send a message to Russia, or in some way targeting Russian interests.

In an interview with state-operated RIA Novosti news agency, Lavrov said that Putin is "ready for such a meeting".

Syria denies the allegation, which has not been independently investigated and verified.

That attack was launched in response to a suspected gas attack mounted on April 7 on Douma, near Damascus, in which more than 40 people were reported killed.

"It's been a long time since Geneva last made any significant progress, and we now have a situation where we have credible accounts of chemical weapons being used in Syria", he said.

On a wall in the province of Idlib, graffiti artist Aziz al-Asmar had these words for Trump: "Your strike is like a rooster's fart".

The Pentagon said that all 105 missiles fired at three Syrian chemical facilities reached their targets, while the Russian military said Syrian air defenses downed 71 out of 103 USA missiles.

The Syrian regime remains able to conduct chemical attacks, though only at a limited level, the Pentagon said on April 19 following last week's worldwide cruise missile strikes on chemical weapons-related targets.

"I'm 100 percent convinced that the military won't allow it", Lavrov said, adding that the Russian and us presidents also "bear responsibility before the people which elected them for peace and security".
