Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said U.S. military strikes on Syria last week has removed any moral obligation Russia had to withhold S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems from its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

He said prior to the U.S. strikes on Syrian targets, Russia had told U.S. officials which areas of Syria represented “red lines” for Moscow.

He also said that he was convinced Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump would not allow an armed confrontation between their two countries.

The United States, France and Britain launched 105 missiles last week in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack by government forces on a rebel-held area near the capital.
