"We Fundamentally Don't Seek War With Iran", Says US State Secretary

Mr Maduro survived an attempted coup but was reportedly refused exile to Russia

"They have chosen poorly by focusing on threats", Hook said, referring to Pompeo's scheduled visit to Russian Federation on Tuesday for meetings with President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

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

"I made clear to Foreign Minister Lavrov, as we've made clear for the past months that interference in American elections is unacceptable", Pompeo said. "Our elections are important and sacred and they must be kept free and fair and with no outside country interfering".

"For all of special counsel Mueller's exotic work, he carried out an impartial investigation and confirmed the lack of any trace and any collusion between Russian Federation and the acting administration - which we from the very beginning characterized as utter nonsense, " Putin told Pompeo at the start of their meeting.

One such situation is the conflict in Syria, where Russian Federation has supported President Bashar al-Assad's forces, while the United States has backed rebels who want to see Assad out of office. U.S.

However, the latest test-launching of missiles by Pyongyang is not only tantamount to a awful slap in the face for Trump, and may also undermine his record on foreign policy or even ruin his chances of winning the Nobel Peace Prize. "These missiles could easily kill a Russian or an American", Pompeo said.

In Sochi, Pompeo said 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.

Three found 'killed by crossbow' in German hotel
But a guest who was staying there the night in question told Passauer Neue Presse : 'It was a completely quiet night'. Hotel staff discovered the bodies in a room alongside two crossbows, the German news agency DPA reported.

Responding to Lavrov's opening remarks, Pompeo said: "I'm here today because President Trump is committed to improving this relationship".

Pompeo sought to alleviate some of the concern but made clear the USA would respond to attacks.

Earlier Wednesday Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov expressed concern that tensions over Iran escalated despite assurances from Pompeo that Washington was not seeking war.

The statement comes after the United States deployed an aircraft carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Persian Gulf last week in what White House National Security Adviser John Bolton claimed was intended as a message to Iran that any attack on USA or allied interests would be met with "unrelenting force".

As for reports that more US troops could be moved to the Middle East, Pompeo said he would defer to the Defense Department.

"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", he added.
