Pompeo has already cancelled in recent days trips to Berlin and Greenland to focus on the Iran issue.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is to visit Brussels on Monday to discuss "pressing matters" including Iran, a State Department official said Sunday.

"Yes, he will fly directly to Sochi", the diplomat said in response to the question about the visit.

So we will see during the day how and if we'll manage to arrange a meeting. "He's always welcome obviously, but there are no precise plans at the moment", Mogherini said.

Hook said Pompeo, while in Brussels, also discussed reported attacks on several oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt called for "a period of calm".

UK Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt spoke in Brussels of the dangers of an "accidentally-triggered" conflict between the USA and Iran over the unravelling of the 2015 pact signed by Tehran, Russia, China, the European Union, the UK, France, Germany and the US.

Hunt said that "if Iran becomes a nuclear power its neighbors are likely to want to become nuclear powers". If Iran walks away, we're back to maximum sanctions from nearly everyone and Iran loses a lot of their oil exporting business.

As tensions between Washington and Tehran over re-imposed USA sanctions have heightened in recent weeks, Moscow has sided with Iran in calling for the 2015 nuclear deal to remain in place.

Iran is threatening to step up uranium refinement if they don't come out of this with some sort of deal they find palatable.

"While Iran remains in compliance, the United Kingdom remains committed to the Iran deal".
