They were notified of our "red lines, ' including geographical "red lines" on the ground".

Lavrov also said that earlier, Russian Federation had decided not to supply its modern S-300 air defense system to Syria following the request of Western countries, which said the move could destabilize the situation, although the system is purely defensive.

"Now, we have no moral obligations", he said.

"It is important we turn the page on this alleged chemical attack because we need to go back to the basics", he noted.

Lavrov noted that despite the escalating tensions between Moscow and Washington, the USA made sure it didn't harm any Russian personnel and positions during the strikes against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad following a suspected chemical attack on the town of Douma.

"President Putin is ready for such a meeting", Lavrov said in an interview with state news agency RIA Novosti.

The Kremlin press service said on March 20 Trump had congratulated Putin on winning the March 18 presidential election.

Lavrov indicated that President Vladimir Putin is ready for such a visit if the invitation is appropriately done with the specifics being outlined.

Mr. Lavrov also said Moscow welcomed an expected summit between Mr. Trump and Kim Jong-un.

The survey was carried out on April 8 among 1,000 people in at least 80 Russian regions, added The Moscow Times.

In recent weeks, tensions have risen further over the March poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter, which Britain has blamed on Russia.

Valentina Matvienko, the speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament said: "Russia's response to the sanctions, our so-called counter-sanctions, will be precise, painful, and without question sensitive for exactly those countries that imposed them (the sanctions) on Russian Federation".

The recent USA -led strikes were launched in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of people in Douma earlier this month.

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.

Syrian forces used Soviet-era air defense systems and fired 112 surface-to-air missiles to repel the USA -led strikes, destroying 71 out of the 103 missiles launched by the Western coalition last week, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
