MOSCOW, July 13. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US State Secretary Mike Pompeo will meet in Helsinki on the margins of the Russia-US summit, the Russian Foreign Ministry informed TASS on Friday.
"A meeting between both countries’ foreign policy chiefs Sergey Lavrov and Mike Pompeo will take place in Helsinki, on the margins of the Russia-US summit," the ministry stated.
In late June, a meeting between Lavrov and Pompeo was reported to be scheduled prior to the Putin-Trump summit. Nevertheless, as the Russian top diplomat said, the US Secretary of State told him in a phone conversation that he could not meet with Lavrov, attributing the difficulty to a tight schedule.
