"It is to the benefit of all parties operating in the air over Syria to avoid accidents and miscalculation, and we hope the Russian Ministry of Defense comes to this conclusion as well".
Trump, speaking from Mar-a-Lago in West Palm Beach, Florida, said the strikes were "in the vital national security interest" of the U.S.
Russia President Vladimir Putin signaled he was ready to risk a clash with the US and abandon hopes for mending ties under President Donald Trump, rather than accept the humiliation of standing by while his ally is bombed.

"The defense ministry summoned the USA embassy's military attache in Moscow to officially suspend Russian obligations under our joint Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) - effective from 00:00 hours on April 8", said Igor Konashenkov, chief spokesperson for Russia's ministry of defence. But the Kremlin insists Assad's government wasn't responsible for the attack, saying civilians in Khan Sheikhoun were exposed to toxic agents from a rebel arsenal that was hit by Syrian warplanes.
The Syrian army said the USA attack killed six people and called it "blatant aggression" which made the United States a partner of "terrorist groups" including Islamic State.
"President Putin believes that the US strikes on Syria represent an aggression against a sovereign state in violation of worldwide law under a far-fetched pretext", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a statement. Also, the strikes took out the air defense system, all the aircraft hangers and the petroleum storage. "Washington's move deals a significant blow to Russia-U.S. relations, which are already in deplorable shape".
Russian Federation joined the war on Assad's behalf in 2015, action that decisively turned the momentum of the conflict in the Syrian government's favour. It could even put the two nuclear superpowers on a course toward military confrontation. In the aftermath of the attack, which Syria said killed at least seven people, Russian Federation announced it would suspend its cooperation in the information-sharing campaign, the first time the line has been severed. He added that Moscow believes it makes no sense to maintain the hotline.
Even though the United States military used the line to warn Russian Federation of the impending missile strike on an Assad air base near Homs early Friday, a furious Moscow reacted to the attack by its ally by saying it would no longer cooperate with the Americans.
