Venezuela, Iran, or the lack of arms controls - the list of topics during the visit of US Secretary of state Pompeo in Russia is long. However, in almost all areas of the countries are above the cross.
A week ago is the last Meeting of the foreign Ministers of Russia and America in the first place. Mike Pompeo and Sergei Lavrov had pulled on the sidelines of a meeting of the Arctic Council discussions. This had been constructive, as the Russian stated the foreign Minister.
"We have no public Statements focused. Of the many things influence, but often no relation to the real politics. We have concentrated on the real policy and we have succeeded." You talk on the phone frequently with each other, said Lavrov at the time. The discussions were always professional and direct.
