MOSCOW — Russia's Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said he had told US officials earlier this week that Moscow is concerned over signs that the United States is preparing new strikes on Syria and warned against "groundless and illegal aggression against Syria". 

Antonov met this week with US officials, including James Jeffrey, special representative for Syria, the Russia Embassy said in a posting on its Facebook page.
