Putin ready to meet Trump: Russian FM

Trump proposed a meeting with Putin at the White House in a phone conversation on March 20, Lavrov recalled in an interview with Russia Today published on the Russian Foreign Ministry's website, adding that Moscow hopes Trump will give specifics on his invitation.

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.

Mr Lavrov said: "There were military leadership contacts, between generals, between our representatives and the coalition leadership".

Moscow had warned the US before the strike that it could hit back if the USA actions jeopardize Russian servicemen in Syria, and the allies had given Russia an advance warning to make sure no Russians were in the line of fire. The Russian foreign minister said that President Trump had indicated that he would make a state visit to the Kremlin if president Putin honored his invitation to the White House.

However, there was no review as the game went on despite the KXIP players disappointed with the umpiring howler. Gayle hit the winning runs six off Tom Curran over long-on as they sealed the issue with 11 balls to spare .

The Damascus suburb of Douma was hit by a suspected chemical attack on April. 7, which left at least 78 civilians dead, according to Syrian civil defense White Helmets.

Leading up to the expected strikes, Russian officials had warned that attacks on Syria would result in retaliatory actions by Russia, but Russia didn't mobilize any of its air defense systems during the strike. The hopes for better ties between Russian Federation and the United States have withered amid the continuing investigation into the alleged interference of the 2016 U.S. presidential elections by the Kremlin. Russian Federation condemned the strike on its ally as an "act of aggression".

"We no longer have such moral obligations", Lavrov said.

"Speaking about the risk of a military confrontation, I feel absolutely confident to assume that the militaries will not allow this, and of course neither will President Putin or President Trump".
