Russian Federation relations may be at their worst, says Donald Trump

Moscow rejected calls by the United States to withdraw support for Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. -Russian relations - which echoed a similar assessment made by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson hours earlier in Moscow - came Wednesday after a meeting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House.

On his visit to Moscow, Mr Tillerson, a recipient of Russia's order of friendship, who knows the country well from his days as boss of ExxonMobil, tried to fix some of the damage done in the past week.

"This reminds me very much of the events of 2003, when USA representatives in the Security Council showed alleged chemical weapons discovered in Iraq", Putin said, bringing back the spectre of a war started on lies, whose result is a disintegrating, destroyed Iraq.

Mr Trump's pre-election calls for closer ties with Russian Federation and Mr Putin seem to have been overcome by their differences over the war in Syria.

Safronkov said Russia's Foreign Minister asked U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during talks earlier Wednesday in Moscow to jointly request the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons "to immediately put together an independent global mission" to visit Khan Sheikhoun and the air base that the U.S. attacked in retaliation. It was Assad's first since the alleged April 4 chemical weapons attack prompted a USA cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base.

Erdogan's office said in a statement that the two leaders held a telephone conversation during which the Turkish leader stressed that the use of chemical weapons "is the greatest crime against humanity".

His brother told the Post he recently found messages on Tigre's computer reading, "I don't want to do these things anymore". He reiterated that Suffolk County detectives have been working with FBI investigators to solve the killings.

Mr Putin said he believed the U.S. would launch more missile strikes, and rebels were planning to stage chemical attacks to provoke more strikes.

He had said it was "obsolete because it was designed many, many years ago". "It'd be a fantastic thing if we got along with Putin and if we got along with Russian Federation, and that could happen, and it may not happen; it may be just the opposite".

Assad denied having chemical weapons and said Syria would only allow an "impartial" investigation into the incident. Peskov also said Putin had given Tillerson his views on the situation in Syria, and how it was likely to develop. "The world's two foremost nuclear powers can not have this relationship", he said.

In a positive development, Russian Federation agreed to consider reopening lines of communication over movements across Syrian airspace, an arrangement that had been cancelled by Moscow in retaliation for last week's missile air strikes by the United States in Syrian air space.

President Donald Trump said the United States' relationship with Moscow "may be at an all-time low".
