Russia's foreign minister warned the USA against trying to impose democracy on Venezuela as Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, said that the time had come for President Maduro to go.

"For our part, we have a few times said that we would also like to fully restore relations, and we hope that now the conditions for that have been met", Putin added.

Pompeo also said he urged Russian Federation to end its support of Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro.

Pompeo and Lavrov held three hours of talks earlier in the day.

Kim used the occasion to accuse the United States of acting in "bad faith" after his second summit with President Donald Trump ended in stalemate in Hanoi.

Pompeo canceled a visit to Moscow on Monday and stopped in Brussels instead, en route to Sochi.

"As we said before there was no collusion from our government officials and it could not be there".

Although Pompeo and Lavrov discussed a wide range of bilateral and worldwide problems, including the situations in Iran, North Korea, Ukraine, Syria and Venezuela, there were no major breakthroughs on any of those issues.

Both Lavrov and Pompeo said they shared a desire to improve battered ties despite not being able to confirm a suggestion by Trump that he would meet Putin on the sidelines of a meeting of the G20 in Japan next month.

The US trip to Russia comes after years of tension over accusations of Russian meddling in the US 2016 elections and also over tensions in Syria and Ukraine.

The intimidations of the White House and the self-proclaimed president, the usurper Juan Guaido, have nothing to do with democracy, Lavrov said in a joint press conference in Sochi with the Head of US diplomacy, Michael Pompeo.

"We touched in general on the possibility of contacts between the presidents of Russian Federation and the United States, particularly on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Japan". And we hope that we can continue to move forward.

Pompeo, who has promised "tough actions" on meddling, last month warned Russian Federation would attempt to influence the next USA presidential election in 2020.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday that Moscow is concerned over mounting tensions and defended Iran's actions as a legitimate response to the US decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal. Russian Federation has interests in oil projects in Venezuela and has propped up Mr Maduro's regime with loans. He said there will be no negotiations on a new nuclear deal.

Hunt, who held talks with Maas and Le Drian on the margins of a regular European Union meeting in Brussels, expressed concern about the risks of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East if Iran were to acquire such weapons.

Putin's foreign affairs adviser Yuri Ushakov said later that the Kremlin is prepared to agree to any format for a Putin-Trump meeting.
