US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday he had a "good conversation" with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and hoped to make progress with Russia where the two countries have common interests.

"It was a good conversation. We covered a wide range of issues," Pompeo told reporters of his talks with Lavrov on the sidelines of a meeting of the Arctic Council.

"We have interests that are definitely different. ... There was a desire to begin to try and find paths where we can make real progress on places where we have overlapping interests, as narrow as they may be, and hope we can achieve that," Pompeo said.
