Trump earlier this week suggested that an attack was imminent.
Asked to comment on possible USA strikes, Peskov said "it's necessary to avoid any steps that may fuel tensions in Syria".
The defense secretary said that he did believe that a chemical attack did take place, but that the United States was still "looking for the actual evidence". "The OPCW (Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) is the organization for the chemical weapons convention - we're trying to get those inspectors in probably within the week".
The president also seemed to suggest that a decision about military action has not been made, telling reporters Thursday morning, "We're having a meeting today on Syria and we're having a number of meetings today, we'll see happens", said Mr. Trump, adding, "We're looking very, very seriously, very closely at that situation and we'll see happens folks, we'll see what happens, it's too bad the world puts us in a position like that". "It's got to end and our strategy remains the same as a year ago, to drive this to a UN-brokered peace, but at the same time keep our foot on the neck of ISIS until we suffocate it".
"We have forces in the field as you know in Syria and the use of chemical weapons in Syria is not something we should assume that, well because he didn't use them on us this time, he wouldn't use them on us next time", he said.

"This is a complex area, I'll be the first to admit it", Mattis said. "We're still working on this".
Mattis said the United States has yet to confirm details of the attack through global investigators.
President Trump has sent mixed messages on the US response, warning Russian Federation in a tweet Wednesday to "get ready" for USA missile strikes in Syria in retaliation for the attack.
"You saw President Obama try to deal with those chemical weapons when he was in and enlisting the Russians who now it shows were complicit in Syria retaining those weapons, Assad retaining them - and the only reason Assad is still in power is because of the Russians regrettable vetoes in the United Nations and the Russian and Iranian military", Mattis said. About 2,000 US military personnel are in Syria.
