Putin in talks with Pompeo as fears spike on US-Iran clashes

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Russian Federation on Tuesday that Washington would brook no interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election and wanted Moscow to take action to show there would be no repeat of its suspected 2016 meddling.

Now that the Mueller report was out of the way, Putin said he hoped ties would start improving.

Putin would agree to such a meeting if formally asked, a Kremlin aide told reporters.

"I've formed the impression that your president wants to fix Russia-U.S. ties and contacts and wants to solve issues which are of common interest for us", Putin told Pompeo.

Putin and Pompeo have discussed the possibility of organizing a meeting between the U.S. and Russian leaders at the G20 summit, and Moscow is now expecting concrete proposals, Ushakov noted.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Russian Federation against interference in the 2020 presidential election as he arrived in the country on Tuesday for talks with Vladimir Putin.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned last week Tehran could resume enrichment of nuclear fuel at a higher grade if the European powers, China and Russian Federation did not do more to circumvent punitive USA measures on banking and energy to boost trade. This will benefit each of our peoples. "And I think that our talks here today were a good step in that direction".

Pompeo spoke of "truly overlapping interests" that the two countries "can build on, and most importantly, President Trump very much wants to do that". They would also like Iran to stay in the Iran nuclear deal so that they never acquire a nuclear weapon.

"Mike Pompeo heard that very clearly from us today, not only from myself, but also from other European Union member states, that we are living in a crucial delicate moment where the most responsible attitude to take is that of maximum restraint".

His inquiry had cast a pall over U.S.

Brian Hook, US special envoy for Iran, said Pompeo made the unscheduled stop in Brussels because "Iran is an escalating threat and this seemed like a timely visit on his way to Sochi". Given, however, the demonstrated inability of this American administration to seek win-win solutions with its nominal allies, there might be no alternative way for Europe to assert its interests.

Pompeo's trip comes a few weeks ahead of a Group of 20 summit in Osaka, Japan, with both Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump expected to attend.

Russian Federation should now work with Ukraine's new president-elect to bring peace to eastern Ukraine, said Pompeo, adding that he wanted Moscow to free a group of captured Ukrainian sailors. Not only are there profound differences between the European Union and the United States on Iran, there is also a growing perception that US policy is unpredictable. Both men deny wrongdoing.

"Most of all we must make sure we don't end up putting Iran back on the path to re-nuclearisation, because if Iran becomes a nuclear power its neighbours are likely to want to become nuclear powers", Hunt said.
