Pompeo cancelled his visit to Moscow scheduled to take place on 13 May in order to hold talks with European ministers in Brussels to discuss Iran, with his agenda for the top-level meeting in Sochi on Tuesday remaining unchanged, ONAreports quoting sputniknews.

Commenting on the upcoming negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the southern city of Sochi, Pompeo tweeted that his meeting will highlight a number of important topics. "On some issues we may agree, on others we may disagree, but when it's in our national interests, it is our responsibility to find a way forward", he added.
