Russia: US did not violate red lines during Syria strikes

Russia's foreign minister said Friday that the US sought out and respected Moscow's positions in Syria when it launched its air strikes last week.


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


"We told them where our red lines were, including the geographical red lines," Lavrov told Russian state television. "The results have shown that they haven't crossed those lines."
