Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, are holding a press conference in Sochi Tuesday after their day of meetings. Pompeo had planned a visit to Moscow beforehand, but it was scrapped so that he could travel to Belgium to talk with European officials about the growing threat posed by Iran.

During their remarks, Lavrov appeared to suggest that the two leaders could not agree on the issue of Iran and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with regards to the regime’s escalating nuclear ambitions.

“We have many difference here but the fact we will continue to discuss the situation that gives us hope that certain agreements could be reached with the support of the U.S. and Russia,” said Lavrov.

The article goes on to state the following:

Pompeo’s meeting with Lavrov comes after President Trump told reporters Monday that he would be meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the upcoming G20 summit of world leaders in Japan.

Despite ongoing concerns over Mr. Trump’s friendliness Putin amid the continuing investigations into Russia’s meddling in the U.S. election process, the president defended his relationship with the leader on Monday, saying that the U.S. has been “strong” against Russia, and that it “makes sense to get along with Russia.”

During an earlier meeting between the two officials, Pompeo said the Trump administration was “committed to improving this relationship” and he hoped this “good faith effort” at the direction of Presidents Trump and Putin would stabilize the relationship.

“I’m sure there will be places where we can’t find common ground,” he said, but he looked forward to the conversations.
