Trump's White House has warned that any further chemical weapons attacks attributed to the Syrian government will meet with more strikes.
Last week, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said Iran should remove its forces from Syria.
Hatami also met with Syrian Defence Minister Ali Abdullah Ayoub and discussed the latest situation with "takfiri groups", he said at a news conference in Damascus, according to the Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA).
French President Emmanuel Macron separately on August 27 called on Russian Federation to rein in Assad, who denies using chemical weapons despite several instances documented by the United Nations and whom Russian Federation has shielded from United Nations retribution over the chemical incidents for years.
Bloomberg News reported last week that US intelligence agencies believe they have evidence that Assad is planning a chemical attack, which if it occurs would fall into a pattern of Assad allegedly using such weapons to both terrorize his rebel opponents and prompt civilians to flee the area under siege. Borshchevskaya said Assad may look to chemical weapons because his conventional military has weakened under seven years of conflict.
Major-General Igor Konashenkov was quoted by agencies as saying that the USS Ross, a guided-missile destroyer, had entered the Mediterranean on August 25 armed with 28 Tomahawk cruise missiles capable of hitting any target in Syria.More news: Serena surges into second round as Halep toppled at US Open
Senior U.S. officials are warning the Russian and Syrian governments against chemical weapons use in Syria as forces allied with its President Bashar Assad prepare for an offensive on a rebel stronghold. Russia's navy buildup around Syria represents the biggest since Moscow kicked off its intervention in Syria with its sole aircraft carrier in 2015.
"Physically, the Russians really can't do anything to stop that strike", Lamrani said.
Such a display of friendship and close cooperation between Iran and Syria could be seen as a clear message to the Americans and Israelis as well as Assad's somewhat cooler ally, Russia, that their plans to get rid of Iran from Israel's northern neighbor are premature.
A statement from Russia's Defense Ministry on Sunday said two frigates were heading to the Mediterranean Sea.
"The U.S. would use its overwhelming airpower in the region and every single Russian vessel on the surface will turn into a hulk in a very short time", if Russian ships engaged the U.S., said Lamrani.
The deputy minister said that many nations, including Russian Federation itself, have already felt the effects of this abuse and emphasized the conclusion that "it is necessary to diversify the world's reserve currencies, expand trade in other currencies, and adopt schemes to dodge American banks".
