Russian Federation says S-400 deal's implementation in 'full swing'

  • Mike Pompeo's EU visit was arranged at the last minute en route to Russia

He also held 90 minutes of talks with Putin.

The United States and Russian Federation share the same goals on North Korea as Washington tries to negotiate a nuclear deal, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said after talks with President Vladimir Putin.

At a joint news conference with Lavrov following the talks, Pompeo said the United States is willing to rebuild its relationship with Russia, but it expects its Russian counterparts to act on it with all seriousness.

Pompeo was the highest-ranking American to see Putin since July when the Russian leader met in Helsinki with Trump - who shocked the USA establishment by seeming to take at face value Putin's denials of election interference. Neither we nor them (the US) seek war.

"I'm not sure we have all the capacity of that, but I think we now have a common understanding of the places where we were hung up, which I think we can work our way through", Pompeo said after the talks at Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi.

Lavrov and Pompeo are likely to talk about arms control after the USA pulled out of the INF, a key post-Cold War security treaty, and indicated its interests in a new agreement that also includes China.

"We'll protect our nation's interest", Pompeo said.

"We had a very productive conversation on pathways forward in Syria, things we can do together where we have a shared set of interests on how to move the political process forward", Pompeo told reporters at the airport before flying out.

Iran was one of the key items on the agenda because of tensions in the region rising.

"As soon as Iran takes its first reciprocal steps and says that it is leaving, everyone will forget by tomorrow that the USA was the initiator of this collapse, Iran will be held responsible, and the global public opinion will be intentionally changed in this direction", Putin said.

Russian Federation and America on Tuesday agreed to seek better relations and ease tensions, even as they clashed on issues ranging from Iran and Venezuela to alleged Kremlin meddling in USA elections.

But he added: "We have also made clear to the Iranians that if American interests are attacked, we will most certainly respond in an appropriate fashion".

The US has recently ramped up the pressure, deploying an aircraft carrier strike group and nuclear-capable bombers to counter vaguely described threats from Iran.

The U.S. had warned sailors of the potential for attacks on commercial sea traffic.

Ushakov said Putin and Pompeo also discussed the situation in Afghanistan, praising the interaction between the two sides over the issue.

A day after Trump said he would meet with Putin at the Group of 20 summit of leaders in Japan in June, Lavrov said Russian Federation has not received a formal proposal. But Putin's aide Yuri Ushakov said they did not touch on Ukraine, where Russia's backing of separatist rebels have prompted United States sanctions.

If Russia were to interfere again in the 2020 U.S. election, Pompeo said, "it would put us in an even worse place".
