Russia, China to obstruct USA attempt to sabotage Iran nuclear deal

Unexploded Western missiles in Russia's hands Russian air defenses to get even better

Russia, which supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, denied that a chemical attack took place.

"We are ready to be responsible for the statistics that our military provided", Lavrov said in an interview with Russia Today.

Last week, the president announced military action against Syria in response to the reported chemical attack.

The Israeli strike was reportedly coordinated with the USA but not with Russian Federation, despite the two countries having established a military hotline meant to avoid conflicts of interest and clashes in Syria operations. The United States, along with the U.K. and France, launched over 100 missiles, targeting suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities. The country has become a congested war zone in which multiple nations are fielding forces to pursue differing interests.

On April 14, the Western coalition fired 103 missiles on Syria, but Syrian air defence forces shot down 71 of those missiles.

On Friday, the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Moscow said that the United States respected and sought out Russian positions in Syria during last week's airstrikes.

Syrian air defenses are largely Soviet-era systems, with SA-2s, SA-5s, and SA-6s as well as the more sophisticated tactical surface-to-air missiles such as the SA-17s and SA-22 systems.

"Russia immediately began a misinformation campaign to sow doubt and confusion to hide its complicity", White said following the recent missiles strikes. "Now, we have no moral obligations", Lavrov commented. We had the moral obligations, we had promised not to do it some 10 years ago, I think, upon the request of our known partners.

The Kremlin on Monday declined to comment on media reports that Russian Federation planned to soon supply Syria with S-300 missile systems, but said a Western missile strike on Syria had soured the atmosphere in the region.

"We are against revising these agreements, we consider it very counter productive to try to reduce to zero years of global work carried out via talks between the six major powers and Iran", TASS quoted Lavrov as saying after talks with Wang Yi, China's top diplomat, in Beijing. "Now we don't have this moral obligation any longer".

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.
