"The Syrian strikes last week hasten the interest, but what I am working on with my colleagues is not with respect to action in Syria", said Sen.

In Russia's opinion, the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons needs to be broadened to consist of experts from several different nations.

"We find it necessary to conduct a thorough, objective, impartial and professional investigation and will insist, in the framework of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and in NY, in the United Nations, on sending inspectors to the site of the incident as well as to the airport, where, according to our colleagues' claims, shells with chemical weapons had been equipped".

Despite the West's narrative being debunked by facts, circumstantial evidence, and simple logic, Tillerson still toyed with the possibility of sanctioning Russian Federation because of the so-called chemical weapons "attack".

"Frankly, it's a tactic we've seen on Russia's part as well in the past", Toner told a daily press briefing.

While Işık was in Washington, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan held a phone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin on recent developments in Syria, after a chemical attack at the hands of the Syrian regime led to a fresh spat between Ankara and Moscow.

It was the first direct United States military action against Assad's forces since Syria's civil war began six years ago and led to a quick downward spiral in ties between Washington and Moscow.

His remarks came at a news conference with his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif, and Walid Muallem, who represents Syria's Assad regime, which is widely blamed for the deadly attack.

Lavrov was meeting with his counterparts from Syria and Iran in a show of support for Damascus after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visited Moscow earlier this week. Citing the importance of U.S. -Russia talks in Moscow on April 13, the foreign minister stressed that "this is an issue to the concern of all parties".

In a combative interview published Thursday by Agence France-Presse, Assad dismissed photographs and video footage that moved President Trump to launch retaliatory strikes on a Syrian air base. "If he doesn't, then we're going to have to think about what our options are - one of them may be bringing a privileged resolution to withdraw United States military forces by a given date from Syria".
