Boris Johnson 'dismayed' by Russia's UN Syria veto

As US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visits Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said trust with the US has eroded under Donald Trump.

Russian Federation has disputed the USA assessment that Assad was responsible for the strike, saying it could have been carried out by rebel forces or terrorist groups.

Trump envoy Tillerson's talks with Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov have been haunted by the incident that saw the U.S. launch punitive strike against Assad's forces.

Al Jazeera's Rory Challands, reporting from Moscow, said the press conference highlighted the two diplomats' "differences in style, in position and in views of the world".

During his presidential election campaign, Trump said he would like the U.S. to have better relations with Russian Federation. Mr Tillerson said there is a "low level of trust" between the two countries, and many issues on which they disagreed.

Mr Putin said he believed the USA would launch more missile strikes, and rebels were planning to stage chemical attacks to provoke more strikes. He also said Putin had agreed to reactivate a U.S.

Tillerson said the United States sees no role for Assad in a resolution to the Syrian conflict, his reign is "coming to an end" and he could be subject to worldwide prosecution as a war criminal.

United States strikes in Syria: Game changer or deterrent? And he suggested that possible war crimes charges could be levied against the Syrian leader.

For his part, UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura called on the United States and Russian Federation to "find a way to work together" to stabilize the situation and support the political process in Syria.

Ja'afari, the Syrian representative, repeated many arguments in his country's defense that he has stated over the six years of civil war. The Kremlin had previously declined to confirm Putin would meet Tillerson, reflecting tensions over the USA strike on Syria. Putin's decision to host Tillerson signaled Moscow's intent to maintain communication with the US even as the countries bash each other publicly in louder and louder tones.

One of Mr Lavrov's deputies was even more scathing.

Tillerson met Putin in the Kremlin after talking to his Russian opposite number Sergei Lavrov for around three hours.

"We're not exactly on the same wavelength with Russian Federation, to put it mildly", Trump said, asking President Putin to reconsider his ties with Assad. "We consider it of utmost importance to prevent the risks of replay of similar action in the future".

Slate looks at a couple reasons for why President Trump hasn't been almost as pro-Russia as candidate Trump, including the possibility that he's been prevented from following pro-Russia policies by political realities in Washington, or simply that he's changed his mind on Russian Federation. "However, the question is if there will be new attempts to carry out aggression against Syria". Tillerson and Lavrov said in a joint press conference that Syria was a major subject in their discussions. Tillerson is a former oil executive who was awarded Russia's Order of Friendship by Putin. But any such expectations have crashed into reality amid the nasty back-and-forth over Syria and ongoing US investigations into Russia's alleged interference in America's USA presidential election. "They were there", Trump said.

"We know they have the expertise".
