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.

"There were military leadership contacts, between generals, between our representatives and the coalition leadership", Lavrov said, according to Sky News.

"They were informed about where our red lines are, including red lines on the ground, geographically". "The results have shown that they haven't crossed those lines".

According to Iranian Tasnim News Agency, Velayati who is also the head of the Islamic Azad University board of founders, has already sent a message to the Syrian president announcing his readiness to establish branches for the university in Syria.

The Kremlin had threatened retaliatory action if strikes were launched- but it now appears there was at least some level of cooperation.

He also said the U.N.is "doing everything" to accelerate the process of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) mission arrival in Syria's Douma.

"You can see the G7, this group of industrialized liberal democracies coming together to vindicate our values here in Canada, and I think you see the groundwork for an excellent G7 summit at Charlevoix", Johnson said.

"Now we have no such moral obligation", he remarked. "Now that this outrageous act of aggression was undertaken by the US, France and United Kingdom, we might think how to make sure that the Syrian state is protected".

Delivering the S-300 system to the Assad regime would thus mark a major change in Syria's defense capabilities, since the system tracks air crafts and ballistic missiles over a range of 300 kilometers.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told reporters that there would be "no political solution in Syria without Russia" and that Moscow "has to contribute its share to such a solution".

Foreign ministers from the Group of Seven industrialized nations were united in opposing Russia's destabilising behaviour while agreeing to leave the door open for dialogue with Moscow, a senior US official said on Sunday. Lavrov also said that President Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump had discussions regarding the possibility of having a state visit to each of the two countries.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said the meeting established "again that there will be no political solution in Syria without Russian Federation. and that Russian Federation has to contribute its share to such a solution".
