Chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana White told reporters Thursday that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "must know the world will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons under any circumstances".

"A few years ago at the request of our partners, we decided not to supply S-300's to Syria", Lavrov said in an interview with the BBC.

Last week, the president announced military action against Syria in response to the reported chemical attack.

On April 14, the US, France and the United Kingdom carried out coordinated airstrikes against Syria in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by government forces in the city of Douma in the suburban Damascus region of Eastern Ghouta on April 7.

"Both sides gave an extremely negative assessment of the missile attack of the United States and its allies on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. And the results show that they did not cross these red lines". The country has become a congested war zone in which multiple nations are fielding forces to pursue differing interests.

He continued, "We took into consideration their claim that this could destabilise the situation".

Delivering the S-300 system to the Assad regime would thus mark a major change in Syria's defense capabilities, since the system tracks air crafts and ballistic missiles over a range of 300 kilometers. Even though it's purely defensive.

Lavrov also said that earlier, Russian Federation had decided not to supply its modern S-300 air defense system to Syria following the request of Western countries, which said the move could destabilize the situation, although the system is purely defensive.
