Britain warns US-Iran conflict could break out 'by accident'

Open this

"As for the attempts of our American partners to derail certain agreements, some projects - I mean Nord Stream 2 and some other projects, we have repeatedly said this and want to reiterate: these are attempts of unfair competition under various political pretexts", he said.

But Pompeo said that in his talks with Lavrov, he "underscored that we must maintain full implementation of the United Nations sanctions until the final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea is achieved".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he would have a "frank conversation" with Pompeo on Iran on Tuesday, saying he expected the top USA diplomat was pressuring the Europeans to reject Iranian overtures for relief from United States sanctions.

The US has continued to build pressure on Iran, with Pompeo accusing Tehran of planning "imminent" attacks and bolstering the military presence in the Gulf.

"We fundamentally do not see a war with Iran", Pompeo told a joint news conference with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov in Sochi.

Lavrov also voiced hope for a better Russian-U.S. dialogue after U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on Tuesday said his country is not seeking war with Iran, despite a spike in tensions that has seen the Pentagon dispatch nuclear-capable bombers to the region.

Lavrov defended Russia's position and said the threats Maduro's government is receiving from US officials, coupled with Guaidó's seeming support for a foreign military intervention, "bear no relation to democracy".

"President Trump's made it clear that his expectation is that we have an improved relationship between our countries".

The two sides described the talks as "frank, " saying that they wanted to improve relations strained for years over the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine and more recently over strategic arms control and USA efforts to oust Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro.

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.

In a late-night encounter in Putin's forested dacha in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, Pompeo became the highest-ranking American to meet the Russian leader in 10 months. "I hope that the necessary conditions for that to happen will now be created". The foreign minister said that channels of communication between the two countries frozen "largely due to baseless accusations" of Russian Federation influencing the US election process and colluding with the Trump campaign. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analysis from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. At a meeting between the USA and Russian delegations, Putin referred to the Mueller report as a "very objective investigation" and reiterated Russia's official position that there was no "collusion" with the Trump campaign.

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN: (Through interpreter) His investigation was objective, and he proved there were no traces - nothing - to show that there was any kind of collusion between Russian Federation and the current administration. He observed, "Iranian nation's definite option is resistance against USA and in this confrontation, US will have to withdraw".
