MOSCOW, April 12. /TASS/. Moscow believes it is important that the steps such as the US missile strike on Syria must not repeat, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Moscow.
"Most recently, we saw rather alarming steps, when an unlawful attack against Syria was carried out," Lavrov said.
"Russia’s leadership has already voiced its principal assessments in this respect. We believe it is of principal importance to prevent risks of a repeat of such steps in the future," Lavrov stressed.
Following an order of US President Donald Trump, the US military fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from its warships in the Mediterranean on an air base in the Syrian Homs Goevrnorate on April 7. The missile strike came as a response to an alleged chemical attack in Idlib on April 4 and targeted what Washington claims was a starting location for the attack. Moscow views the incident as an aggression against a sovereign state and a blatant violation of international law.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry’s data, the Syrian aircraft hit workshops on April 4 where terrorists were producing chemical-laden munitions supplied to Iraq and used in Aleppo.
Moscow wants to understand real intentions of the American administration, Lavrov said at a meeting with Tillerson.
"We are always in favor of collective steps," Lavrov said. "We do not consider any closed alliances and misalliances productive."
"It’s very important for us to understand the US position and real intentions of your administration. I hope to achieve progress on this path today," the minister added.
