Pompeo to meet Putin on Russian Federation visit

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said on Monday that she expects to hold a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo later in the day in Brussels.

After meeting with Lavrov on the sidelines of an Arctic Council foreign ministers meeting in Rovaniemi, Finland, on Monday, Pompeo said he believed the conversation had been "good" and had set the stage for potentially positive discussions on the significant differences between Washington and Moscow on many issues.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will head to Russian Federation next week for talks with President Vladimir Putin amid heightened U.S. -Russia tensions over the crisis in Venezuela and the Trump administration's hardline policy on Iran, the State Department said Friday.

"We will be here all day with a busy agenda".

The European powers rejected that ultimatum.

Iran's announcement on Wednesday, related to curbs on its stockpiling of nuclear materials, was in response to US sanctions imposed following Trump's withdrawal of the United States from the accord with Tehran a year ago.

He will also participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to honour the sacrifices of those who died fighting with against the Nazi regime.

That followed a period of near silence and high tension, with no calls since August 2018 and Trump canceling a formal meeting with Putin at the G20 in November over Russian seizure of three Ukrainian vessels and 24 sailors.

While in Brussels, Pompeo will discuss a range of pressing issues, including Iran, with representatives from the UK, Germany and France, the official said.

The Ministry also told TASS that "Russia is ready to restart talks on strategic stability and consider concrete proposals in the context of Donald Trump's statements on a new nuclear disarmament treaty".

Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Guards' aerospace division, said at the weekend that the vessel would have been a threat in the past.

As the US sanctions bite, domestic pressure is increasing on Rouhani to demonstrate that Iran can still benefit from an agreement based on providing it with economic opportunities in exchange for limiting nuclear development.
