Russian Federation says the chemicals that killed civilians last week belonged to rebel forces, not Assad's government, and accused the United States of acting on a false pretext. All this seemed to indicate that Mr Trump saw Mr Putin as a potential partner, even ally.
Boris Johnson insisted on Wednesday night that he had not given up on a political solution to the Syrian civil war despite "dismay" at Russian Federation vetoing a UN Security Council resolution condemning last week's nerve gas attack.The Foreign Secretary said Russian Federation had put itself on "the wrong side of the argument" but it was not too late for Vladimir Putin to change his mind over his support for Bashar al-Assad's "barbaric" regime, writes The Telegraph. Two days later America fired 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the airbase in central Syria from which it claimed Mr Assad's attack had been launched.

U.S. -Russia relations were supposed to improve under the Trump administration.

"I think he had a very successful meeting in Russia", Trump said. Firstly, President Putin had a very important talk with Secretary of State Tillerson for about two hours. In response Mr Lavrov gave his counterpart a long lecture on American efforts to achieve "regime change" around the world, citing Serbia, Libya and Iraq.
Looking at the resolution's supporters sitting around the horseshoe-shaped table in the Security Council, he said: "You are afraid of an impartial investigation" that the Syrian government was being blamed for chemical weapons attacks carried out by extremists.

The U.N. Security Council has scheduled a vote Wednesday afternoon on a Western-drafted resolution that would condemn the reported use of chemical weapons in northern Syria and demand that all parties provide speedy access for investigators.
