Pompeo, Russia's Lavrov see hope for improved US-Russia ties

A trilateral meeting between Russia, China, and United States was organized late last month in Moscow to discuss peace efforts in Afghanistan.

Pompeo said that improved ties "will be good not only for our two countries but for the whole world as well".

"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.

Pompeo said that he and Putin agreed on ways to move ahead with a long-delayed Syrian-led committee that will rewrite the constitution in hopes of a political end to the conflict. "The US stands ready to find common ground with Russian Federation".

It's a odd comment, to say the least, considering that Mueller did establish that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election to benefit Trump.

I think it's a case-by-case situation for a player and for people in general. "And just that's kind of part of the process". The NFL has yet to issue any disciplinary action following Walton's string of three arrests in less than three months.

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

"If the Russians were engaged in that in 2020, it would put our relationship in an even worse place than it has been", said Pompeo.

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

The U.S. Embassy in Iraq says the State Department has ordered all non-essential, non-emergency government staff to leave the country right away amid escalating tensions with Iran.

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".

Mukasey assigned Durham to investigate the CIA's destruction of videotapes which showed terrorism suspected being tortured. Durham was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 2018.

"It's not about 'moving on.' It's about trying to find solutions, compromises, places where there are overlapping interests", he told reporters.

Pompeo said improved ties between the two countries - damaged by Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and US sanctions against Russia - "will be good not only for our two countries but for the whole world as well".

Although Pompeo and Lavrov discussed a wide range of bilateral and worldwide problems, including the situations in Iran, North Korea, Ukraine, Syria and Venezuela, there were no major breakthroughs on any of those issues. He also said the two sides disagree on Venezuela and urged Russian Federation to end its support for President Nicolas Maduro.

Hook made the remarks after The New York Times newspaper reported that the White House is reviewing military plans that could see the deployment of up to 120,000 troops to the Middle East should Iran attack USA forces or accelerate work on nuclear weapons.

Moscow is a key ally of President Nicolas Maduro whereas Washington backs opposition leader Juan Guaido.
