Russian FM & US Secretary of State discuss US strike on Syria in phone call

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has discussed the US missile strike in Syria with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a phone conversation, the ministry has said.

Lavrov told his US counterpart that Washington’s claims, accusing the Syrian army of the use of chemical weapons in Idlib on April 4, were “inaccurate and inconclusive,” the ministry said.

A thorough and impartial investigation must be launched following the alleged chemical attack in Idlib, which the US cited as the reason for its missile strike, Lavrov told the American official.
