Russia's foreign minister has said the United States sought out and respected Moscow's positions in Syria when it launched its air strikes last week.

Sergei Lavrov added that the Russian military chiefs had informed the USA military commanders in Syria about their red lines which included the physical ones. "The results have shown that they haven't crossed those lines".

He also said that he was convinced Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump would not allow an armed confrontation between their two countries, RIA reported.

Russia's Defense Ministry said that the missile strike against Syria's military and civilian infrastructure facilities was carried out by U.S. planes and naval ships in cooperation with British and French air forces between 03:42 and 05:10 Moscow time.

Trump proposed a meeting with Putin at the White House in a phone conversation on March 20, Lavrov recalled in an interview with Russia Today published on the Russian Foreign Ministry's website, adding that Moscow hopes Trump will give specifics on his invitation.

Mr Lavrov said: "There were military leadership contacts, between generals, between our representatives and the coalition leadership". Kremlin officials do not want to be impolite or too obtrusive at the same time.

"President Putin is ready for such a meeting", Mr Lavrov said.

On Apr. 10, the OPCW said it would deploy a fact-finding mission team to investigate the suspected chemical gas attack in Syria. Russian Federation condemned the strike on its ally as an "act of aggression". The strikes targeted a research facility in Damascus, the Syrian Guard headquarters, an air defense base, a few military airfields and army depots.

Mr Lavrov, who said Russian Federation will soon offer evidence to back up its claims, added that Moscow may reconsider a pledge it gave a decade ago not to provide Syria with sophisticated long-range S-300 missiles in light of the strikes. While around a decade ago, Moscow "heeded" the calls of its partners and put the deliveries on hold, the Russian foreign minister said it now has "no such moral obligation".
