Tillerson also told Lavrov that better relations with the US require Russian Federation stop its support for Assad. He said Moscow has lots of questions about the "very ambiguous" and "contradictory" ideas emanating from Washington.

Putin also said on Russian TV that the level of trust has "deteriorated".

Putin also asserted that Syria has complied with an agreement to dispose of chemical weapons "so far as we know".

Following a "very frank" meeting with Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, Tillerson admitted the relationship between Russian Federation and the U.S. is at a "low point", characterized by mistrust, the Hill reports.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vladimir Safronkov told the council before the vote that during talks in Moscow Russia asked for an independent global investigation to examine the April 4 attack on Khan Sheikhoun. It shouldn't be allowed. I have absolutely no doubt we did the right thing.

The interview was broadcast as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson held his first meeting with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.

But he renewed his argument that NATO's member states need to dedicate two percent of their gross domestic product to military expenditure.

United States officials have suggested Russian forces may have colluded in the latest atrocity blamed on Assad's regime, and it remained unclear if Tillerson will be invited to meet Putin.

Mr Trump's pre-election calls for closer ties with Russian Federation and Mr Putin seem to have been overcome by their differences over the war in Syria.

Meanwhile, Turkey's health minister confirmed that post-mortem tests on the victims showed that the deadly nerve agent sarin had been used in the April 4 attack.

The three countries are calling for two investigations, an independent probe into the chemical attack and another investigation into the United States missile strike.

"The world's two foremost nuclear powers can not have this kind of relationship", he said.

Until the chemical attack, the Trump administration had sought to step back from the USA position that Assad should leave power. "This is contrary to any standards of justice", said Vladimir Safronkov, Russia's deputy envoy to the UN.

"Vicious slaughter of innocent civilians with chemical weapons including the barbaric killing of small and helpless children and babies must be forcefully rejected by any nation that values human life", Mr Trump said.

"Are we going to get involved with Syria? If you have any examples I'd be glad if you could share them with me".
