Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said goal of the USA missile attacks on an airfield in Syria last week was aimed at stalling the peace process within the country after six years of the bloody conflict.
"There is a low level of trust between our two countries".
"I would like to stress that the U.S. missile attack on the Shayrat air base was actually a provocation", the Russian top diplomat said.
With the tension between Russian Federation and US over the Syria civil war not looking to be resolved any time soon, people from all over are getting understandably anxious. "We may be at an all-time low in terms of a relationship with Russian Federation", said Trump.
"The world's two foremost nuclear powers can not have this kind of relationship", Tillerson said.
Peskov also said Putin had given Tillerson his views on the situation in Syria, and how it was likely to develop.

Putin has condemned the US military assault on a Syrian airfield, saying that the move represents an aggression against a sovereign state in violation of worldwide law under a far-fetched pretext. Attempts to disrupt the ceasefire in Syria still continue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem on Thursday. It was Assad's first since the alleged April 4 chemical weapons attack prompted a United States cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base.
The Syrian representative noted that the Syrian government, basing on its firm principles, has joined the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons Convention and fulfilled its obligations in this regard since it made unprecedented achievement in the OPCW's history and ended the Syrian chemical weapons program in record time, back in 2014.
He said earlier he would ask The Hague and the global community to investigate the allegations.
Wayne White, former deputy director of the State Department's Middle East intelligence office, told Xinhua that the idea of Washington and Moscow reaching a consensus is highly unlikely. He said Russia's hope was that Putin's message would be passed on to US President Donald Trump.
"One side inevitably would have to make big sacrifices inconsistent with some of its policy interests, but Trump and Vladimir Putin are two.assertive personalities who instinctively preserve their powerful images".
