Pompeo says Russia not partner in Middle East

United States Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo stated in a speech on Friday that it is "irrational" to think of Russia as a "worthy partner" in the Middle East.

Speaking at the Körber Foundation in Berlin, the diplomat added that Washington doesn't want Europe's energy supplies to depend on "Putin's whims," in reference to the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

In regards to NATO, Pompeo underlined that the North Atlantic military alliance "needs to grow" to avoid becoming obsolete.
