Mike Pompeo made the remarks while sitting alongside Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, at a joint press conference in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
"I conveyed that there are things that Russian Federation can do to demonstrate that these kinds of activities are a thing of the past".
"We are ready to do that if our U.S. colleagues are ready to reciprocate".
"We fundamentally do not seek a war with Iran", Pompeo said during a visit to Russian Federation, a key backer of Tehran which has blamed the current crisis on Washington's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. The U.S. has accused Iran of threatening to attack American interests in the Middle East and suggested that Iran or Iranian proxies are behind incidents of alleged sabotage on Emirati, Norwegian and Saudi tankers in the Persian Gulf.
US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on Tuesday said his country is not seeking war with Iran, despite a spike in tensions that has seen the Pentagon dispatch nuclear-capable bombers to the region. And we hope that we can continue to move forward.
"As we said before there was no collusion from our government officials and it could not be there".
"We see that there are suspicions and prejudices", Lavrov told Pompeo at the start of their talks.
Pompeo met with Putin on Monday in Russia's resort of Sochi where he sought to alleviate some of the concerns about the spiraling tensions but made clear the USA would respond to any attacks on American targets. They would also like Iran to stay in the Iran nuclear deal so that they never acquire a nuclear weapon.
