Pompeo meets EU's Mogherini after Middle East conference

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with the EU's top diplomat in Brussels on Friday (February 15), a day after Vice President Mike Pence accused America's traditional European allies of trying to undermine U.S. sanctions against Iran.

The meeting with Federica Mogherini, the EU's foreign policy chief, was scheduled before Pence's rebuke of European powers during a Middle East peace conference in Warsaw on Thursday (February 14), which Mogherini missed, citing a scheduling conflict at NATO.

Mogherini, who helped seal the 2005 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, greeted Pompeo in front of a bank of cameras at the EU's headquarters in Brussels before they headed into a conference room for the breakfast meeting, that was scheduled to last for about an hour.

Mogherini shook her head and waved off a question from the media about what she thought of Pence's speech in Warsaw, when he accused the European Union of trying to break the impact of U.S. economic sanctions on Iran.
