Pompeo warns Russian Federation not to meddle in 2020 USA elections

Pompeo, on his first visit to Russian Federation as the top US diplomat, said the Trump administration is committed to improving ties and wants to work together where the two countries have what he called "overlapping interests".

Pompeo sought to alleviate some of the concern but made clear the USA would respond to attacks.

But Pompeo told reporters Tuesday he thinks US and Russian officials "now can begin to work together" in a way to begin the process set out in a U.N. Security Council resolution that calls for a Syrian-led political transition with a cease-fire, new constitution and elections.

Donald Trump's secretary of state has warned Russian Federation not to meddle in the 2020 USA presidential election after face-to-face talks with Vladimir Putin. "We think it is time to build a new and more constructive matrix for our relations", Lavrov said.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Berlin "still regards this nuclear agreement as the basis for Iran not having any nuclear weapons in the future and we regard this as existential for our security".

On Monday US President Donald Trump warned that Iran would "suffer greatly" were it to "do anything", after US intelligence suggested Tehran was planning to attack US interests in the region.

"I had the impression that the president intends to rebuild US-Russian relations and contacts in order to solve issues of mutual interest, " Putin told Pompeo, referring to the call with Trump.

Sri Lanka imposes nationwide curfew as anti-Muslim riots spread
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attacks, which were carried out by a local radicalized Muslim group. Muslims constitute some 10% of Sri Lanka's 22 million people; Christians make up around 7.5% of the population.

The exchange follows the publication of the Mueller report, which found that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 U.S. election but did not conclude that the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow. Lavrov rejected accusations of interference as "complete fiction".

Pompeo and Lavrov, who appeared at ease with other, were to brief President Vladimir Putin on the meeting in the evening. "Russia is not a fire brigade", Putin said.

"I'm here today because President Trump is committed to improving this relationship", he told Lavrov at the start of their meeting.

Venezuela was a key point of discussion and difference, with the USA firm in its commitment to support opposition figure Juan Guaidó as the country's legitimate leader and Russian Federation equally firm in its backing of embattled President Nicolas Maduro. "It's not destined that we're adversaries on every issue". That followed the cancellation of talks planned for Paris during November 11 commemorations for the centenary of the end of the First World War.

It's not clear what's changed since then.

The US administration has kept up a campaign of pressure including sanctions on Russian Federation over the alleged election meddling and Moscow's support for armed separatists in Ukraine.

Going into the Sochi talks, Pompeo and Lavrov both said they wanted to see ties between Washington and the United States improve.
