US, Russia clash on election meddling but eye way forward

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday arrived in Russian Federation for talks that are expected to focus on an array of issues including arms control and Iran.

On his first trip to Russia as U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that he warned his Russian counterpart against any "unacceptable" Russian meddling in U.S. elections.

"Austria is not going to leave the Nord Stream 2 project, and Austrian oil and gas corporation OMV especially", Van der Bellen said during a joint news conference after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin ahead of the Sochi Dialogue Forum.

Earlier, during the joint press conference after talks with Lavrov, Pompeo issued a few stern warnings to Russian Federation, saying it should refrain from interfering in the 2020 U.S election, free captured Ukrainian sailors and try to make peace with Ukraine.

"There is the political process associated with UN Security Council Resolution 2254 that has been hung up and I think we mutually now can begin to work together in a way to unlock that", he said.

Hook would not comment officially on The New York Times report, but he said any buildup was being made "in order to make sure that we're prepared if attacked".

The US has pulled out of a nuclear deal backed by the Europeans, Russia and China and instead has slapped sweeping sanctions on Iran in an all-out effort to curb Tehran's regional clout.

"As we said before there was no collusion from our government officials and it could not be there".

"If American interests are attacked, we will most certainly respond in an appropriation fashion", said Pompeo.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov noted that Russia and the United States have "many differences" on the matter of relationships and sanctions on Iran, who is a close Russian ally in the region. He hoped to build on the EU´s uneasiness over Iran´s recent announcement of reduced compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in response to the USA unilateral withdrawal a year ago, and to supply additional arguments to bolster the US case against Iran.

Pompeo has led United States charges that Russian Federation is to blame for the continued rule of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, a leftist firebrand whom Washington is seeking to oust.

Pompeo underlined to Putin that Trump wanted to make "our two peoples more successful and, frankly, the world more successful, too".

"There were no assurances from Pompeo", Putin's spokesman told reporters. "It's about trying to find solutions, compromises, places where there are overlapping interests".

But Putin's aide Yuri Ushakov said they did not touch on Ukraine, where Russia's backing of separatist rebels have prompted U.S. sanctions.

Most Latin American and European nations recognize opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president of Venezuela, whose crumbling economy has prompted millions to flee. 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.
