The United States, Britain and France carried out attacks at the weekend on alleged chemical weapons facilities, in response to what they say was a toxic gas attack by the Russia-backed Assad regime a week before.

"We hope that, when our American colleagues solve their internal issues, some kind of communication will begin despite all the damage to (our) bilateral relations now imposed by Washington", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

OPCW chief Ahmet Uzumcu had briefed emergency talks about the deployment of the team, which arrived Saturday in Damascus.

The Kremlin today said it still hopes for dialogue with Washington despite US-led strikes on Moscow's ally Syria last week.

"It is of no secret that positions of Moscow and Ankara differ on a number of issues, however, this does not hamper further exchange of bilateral opinions as well as discussions of differences in our positions", Peskov said.

Predictably, the Western strikes against Syria at the weekend caused outrage in Moscow but Putin did not announce any retaliatory measures, with Russian Federation simply calling an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council.
