Washington, Dec 11 (TIWN) US President Donald Trump has warned Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov that Russia should not interfere in the US 2020 elections, the White House said, while Moscow has insisted that it never did so in the 2016 elections, despite the US intelligence services' conclusion to the contrary.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov largely stuck to their existing positions as they described talks that ranged from alleged Russian interference in U.S. elections to the wars in Ukraine and Syria, North Korea's nuclear program and improving economic ties.

At a joint news conference, Pompeo said the United States believed other parties, such as China, needed to be brought in to a wider arms control discussion, and he said he would consider a Russian proposal to include nuclear powers Britain and France.

"There is real risk that there is a reduction in strategic stability just staying right where we are," Pompeo said, arguing that delivery systems have evolved beyond the missiles, bombers and submarines covered by the New START treaty signed in 2010.
