Pompeo warns Russian Federation not to meddle in 2020 USA elections

FILE US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

Speaking in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi on Tuesday, Pompeo assured Russian Federation that his country did not want war with Iran, despite a spike in tensions that has seen the Pentagon dispatch nuclear-capable bombers to the region.

Trump himself rejected the New York Times report, saying it was "fake news" but did not rule out deploying "a hell of a lot more" soldiers in the future.

"On Venezuela, we have disagreement", Pompeo said.

"We touched in general on the possibility of contacts between the presidents of Russian Federation and the United States, particularly on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Japan".

"Negotiating with the present American government is doubly poisonous... they are not decent humans, they don't stand by anything", he said referring to the USA decision to withdraw from the landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and major world powers.

The top U.S. diplomat also said that the United States and Russian Federation largely saw eye-to-eye on Afghanistan, where Trump wants to pull troops, and North Korea amid Trump's diplomatic drive for a nuclear accord.

Putin's willing to meet Trump, but here's been no official invitation so far, Lavrov said. "Russia is not a fire brigade", Putin said.

"Despite the exotic nature of Mr Mueller's commission, on the whole he conducted quite an objective investigation and confirmed the absence of any collusion between the USA administration and Russia", Putin said.

"Interference in American elections is unacceptable".

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo conveyed President Donald Trump's interest in restoring better ties.

Lavrov said both countries are overdue to dispel "suspicions and prejudices" and to "start building a new constructive framework" of how Russian Federation and the U.S see each other.

"We want and we are ready to deal with cyber-security issues along with our American partners, without any politicization", he said.

Pompeo - who just three days earlier in a speech said that "the Putin regime slays dissidents in cold blood" - said he was not trying to reconcile but rather to find common interests.

"We of course heard President Trump's statement that he expects to hold a meeting with President Putin, " Lavrov said in the news conference.

Putin and Pompeo also discussed the crises on Iran and Venezuela. "We said we are open to any contacts and will wait for the specification of the proposal", Ushakov said.

Earlier, Pompeo said he warned Russian Federation against meddling in the 2020 USA presidential elections. The United States and 50 other countries have recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela's interim leader.

But Lavrov flatly rejected the request, denouncing USA and opposition "threats" against the Maduro government.
