The United States will raise the issue of election interference with Russian officials following the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report that concluded Moscow meddled in the 2016 US presidential election, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a press conference on Friday
"We will talk about the steadfast requirement that Russia not engage in activity that impacts the capacity of our democracy to be successful ... As you've seen from this administration, we will take tough actions, which raise the costs for Russian malign activity.
And we will continue to do that," Pompeo said.
On Thursday, the Justice Department released Mueller's final report of the investigation into allegations of Trump-Russia collusion and Russia's interference in the 2016 US elections. US Attorney General William Barr said the report said the investigation did not find any evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
