Putin meets Pompeo as US seeks ‘a way forward’

Sochi: Russian President Vladimir Putin’s meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in the highest-level talks between the rival powers in nearly a year, dealt with a raft of disagreements from Venezuela to Iran to arms control.
Pompeo is visiting Putin in the Black Sea resort of Sochi less than two weeks after US President Donald Trump voiced optimism about improving relations with Moscow during a more than one-hour telephone conversation with the Russian leader.
The new diplomatic push followed the long-awaited report in the United States by investigator Robert Mueller which found that Russia interfered in the 2016 election but that the Trump campaign did not collude with Moscow, partially lifting a cloud that had hung over the mogul-turned-president for two years.
