Pompeo says agreed with Putin on Syria progress

Pompeo crashes Brussels meeting of EU diplomats for Iran talks

Pompeo's visit represents the first high-level contact between Moscow and Washington since U.S. Special Counsel Robert Muller submitted a report examining the nature of Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Later, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Pompeo and said he was committed to improving ties with the usa now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe showed a "demonstrated absence of any kind of traces, of any kind of collusion" between Moscow and Trump's presidential campaign. Still, his claim of vindication covered only allegations that Russian Federation and the Trump campaign colluded to hurt Hillary Clinton's candidacy.

"It's threats that we hear against Maduro's government, threats of the mouths of officials.this has nothing in common with democracy", argued Lavrov.

"I think we share the same objective and I hope that we can find ways that we can work together", Pompeo told reporters after the talks late Tuesday in the Russian resort of Sochi.

Following talks the previous day with Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi in Sochi, Lavrov also mentioned Afghanistan as a model for the trilateral format between the three countries.

"There are things Russian Federation can do to convey that these types of activities are a thing of the past and I hope they take advantage of that".

"We have many differences here but the fact we will continue to discuss the situation that gives us hope that certain agreements could be reached with the support of the U.S. and Russia", Lavrov said, according to CBS News.

"It's clear such insinuations are absolutely fake", said Lavrov.

"We both want to move forward on the political track to bring the suffering of the Syrian people to an end", he said.

Pompeo nonetheless also voiced hope for a better future with Russian Federation.

China, US have ‘wisdom’ to resolve trade dispute, says senior diplomat
Trump, who has embraced protectionism as part of an "America First" agenda, said he would talk to Xi at a G20 summit in late June. In his Tuesday tweets, Trump said the "massive tariffs" now in place will pay for government bailouts for suffering farms.


And Pompeo seems to be echoing whatever Trump says but has a track record as an unreformed Iran hawk. "These are things we can build upon", Pompeo said.

Pompeo was the highest-ranking American to see Putin since July when the Russian leader met in Helsinki with Trump - who shocked the U.S. establishment by seeming to take at face value Putin's denials of election interference.

"We've said this not only about the Russians but about other countries as well", Pompeo added.

But, Pompeo added, the United States has also made it clear to Tehran that if United States interests are attacked, Washington will certainly reserve its rights to respond as it deems appropriate. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

"On Venezuela, we have disagreement", Pompeo said. Even if a Democratic candidate wins, the hostility to Iran is so deeply entrenched in the American system that the European Union simply can not afford to tether its policy to the United States when it comes to its relations with a pivotal player in the Middle East.
