Pompeo: anti-Russia sanctions remain in effect

Washington's position on anti-Russia sanctions has not changed after the meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.

Secretary of State said that U.S. policy toward Russia has not changed as a result of the meeting and "no commitment" was made to ease U.S. sanctions, USA Today reported.

Pompeo disclosed only three issues discussed by Trump and Putin during their closed-door session last week: reviving an exchange between the two countries' business leaders; re-establishing a counterterrorism council to increase cooperation on that front; and working to return the millions of displaced Syrians who have fled their war-torn country.
