Putin claims intel shows more chemical attacks planned in Syria

When asked whether Russian Federation had prior knowledge about the Syrian government's alleged use of chemical weapons, Trump said it's "possible", but "unlikely" that Russian Federation had known in advance of Syria's plan to launch a chemical weapons attack on its own citizens. But so far, it appears the two countries are growing further apart. -Russian relations may be at an all-time low.

"I expressed the view that the current state of US-Russian relations is at a low point", Tillerson said.

Will Trump's often-stated desire to reset relations with Russian Federation come true or will the ties between the two countries stay at the "low" mentioned by Tillerson?

"Yesterday, at the United Nations Security Council's meeting, we saw a theatrical event when the western countries raced to attack the Syrian political regime", he went on to say. "The world's two foremost nuclear powers can not have this kind of relationship", he said at a news conference, adding that Moscow and Washington had agreed to establish a working group to identify problems and improve bilateral relations.

Tillerson met President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov for discussions that were meant to tackle, primarily, the fight against Daesh and safe zones, but that were consumed by the chemical attack in Syria.

Donald Trump authorized the launching of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the sovereign Syrian state. Attempts to disrupt the ceasefire in Syria still continue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem on Thursday.

Putin's comments come during a major diplomatic rift with the United States over a gas attack last week that killed 89 people in Syria's Idlib province. Only through working to change the dynamic of the battlefield can the global community bring forth the conditions for a political solution.

"I would like to commend the position of the Russian government, Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian people concerning the U.S. aggression", Muallem said.

"One side inevitably would have to make big sacrifices inconsistent with some of its policy interests, but Trump and Vladimir Putin are two.assertive personalities who instinctively preserve their powerful images".
