Russian, Syrian and Iranian foreign ministers held a trilateral meeting in Moscow on Friday to discuss issues surrounding the settlement and resolution of the Syrian conflict.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The meeting was carried out a week after the reported chemical weapons incident in the province of Idlib and subsequent US cruise missile strike against the Ash Sha’irat airbase.

The suspected chemical weapons incident in Syria’s northwestern province on April 4 claimed dozens of lives, including those of children. Blaming the attack on Syria’s President Bashar Assad, the United States launched a cruise missile attack on the government airfield in Syria’s Homs province overnight on April 6, which left at least two civilians from a nearby village and five Syrian servicemen dead, according to Homs Governor Talal Barazi.

The Syrian government has denied using chemical weapons against its own people and stated it did not possess such weapons.

‘Strong Message’

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem called the trilateral meeting a “strong message” after the US missile strike on the airfield.

“This meeting is a strong message after the US aggression in Syria,” Muallem told reporters.
