BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov discussed the Syrian situation, the Skripal poisoning and the possibility of Russian leader Vladimir Putin meeting US President Donald Trump at the White House during an interview in Moscow on Friday

Lavrov said that Trump had proposed a meeting to Putin during the presidents’ phone call, hoping that “he [Trump] will be more specific with regard to [this proposal].”

Talking about the airstrikes the US, France and the UK conducted as a response to the alleged chemical attack in Douma, Lavrov said that Russian military informed the US-led coalition on Moscow’s “red lines” prior to the missile raid, adding that “the results show that they have not crossed these ‘red lines’.”

Turning onto the Skripal case and the OPCW’s investigation into it, Lavrov accused the UK of directing the organisation’s probe in order to get the results desired by London.
