Pompeo warns Russia: Don't meddle in 2020 election

Mike Pompeo's EU visit was arranged at the last minute en route to Russia
He also held 90 minutes of talks with Putin.
On Iran, Venezuela, and Russian interference in U.S. elections, Pompeo and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov voiced sharp disagreement at a joint news conference.
"Interference in American elections is unacceptable", Pompeo toldreporters at a news conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
Pompeo's trip comes a few weeks ahead of a Group of 20 summit meeting June 28-29 in Osaka, Japan, with both Putin and President Trump expected to attend. Iran has denied that they are interested in war.
"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.
"I hope that we can find places where we have overlapping interests and can truly begin to build out strong relationships", Pompeo said, citing the fight against terrorism and regional conflicts as potential areas for co-operation.
Pompeo underlined to Putin that Trump wanted to make "our two peoples more successful and, frankly, the world more successful, too".
"On our behalf, we have said it multiple times that we also would like to rebuild fully fledged relations, and I hope that right now the conducive environment is being built for that", Putin said to Pompeo.
Earlier, Pompeo said he warned Russian Federation against meddling in the 2020 USA presidential elections.
"Some of our cooperation has been excellent, on North Korea, on Afghanistan, " Pompeo told Putin.
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.
Pompeo and Trump's national security adviser John Bolton have repeatedly accused Russia, along with Cuba, of propping up Maduro and demanded that Russian and other foreign troops, intelligence officers and security forces leave the country.
Ties between the two countries have been damaged by allegations - denied by Moscow - that Russian Federation tried to influence the results of the 2016 United States presidential election, and by differences over Iran, Syria, Ukraine and Venezuela.
Pompeo sought to alleviate some of the concern but made clear the US would respond to attacks.
"We fundamentally do not seek war with Iran, " Pompeo said. "We have also made clear to the Iranians that if American interests are attacked we will most certainly respond in the appropriate fashion".
