Tillerson Rules Out A Clinton-Style 'Reset' With Russia

Tillerson Rules Out A Clinton-Style 'Reset' With Russia”

SECRETARY REX TILLERSON: Well, first, I'd say if anyone has earned the right to express their views, Senator McCain has. "And my values are those of the country".

"So, the President, I think, has committed to at least make an effort in that regard and he has certainly asked me to make an important effort as well", Tillerson said, noting that relationship with Russian Federation comes up in his conversation with leaders of Europe as well.

Tillerson assured Todd that he has "a great relationship with the president", suggesting that it's specifically because he does "understand what his objectives are". [.] I am devoted to helping the president achieve his objectives, helping him be successful.

"I think it just speaks to a level of dysfunction at the State Department, in terms of at least the communications effort that I think is truly remarkable", Kirby said.

The two talked about the European asylum system, trade relations and other issues, according to Merkel. Macron is the conservative Merkel's fourth French president in almost 12 years as chancellor.

Tillerson acknowledged that sour relations between Russian Federation and the US are "not healthy for the world" or for USA national security, but he was sober in his assessment of the future.

"But I make a distinction between values and policy". "Policy has to be tailored to the individual situation". "To the country. To its circumstances".

Speaking on NBC on Sunday, Tillerson reiterated that relations had fallen to "an all-time low point since the end of the Cold War, with a very low level of trust".

The top US diplomat spoke before Donald Trump leaves on May 19 for his first overseas trip as president, and days after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election campaign. "We don't give anyone a free pass on any of them", he said.

North Korea: New long-range missile can carry heavy nuke
On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin condemned the launch as "counterproductive, damaging, dangerous". Even before North Korea gave its account of what happened, the launch caught the eye of experts.

Tillerson did not directly confirm that Russian election-meddling went unaddressed in the talks, but said "we're not trying to start with a clean slate" in dealings with Moscow.

Asked what repercussions the Russians should face for interfering in the US election, Tillerson did not offer any specifics.

"But again, I think we have to look at this relationship in its broadest contours".

Mr McMaster said he had not reached out to any of the US's foreign intelligence-sharing partners on the issue, but was "not concerned" that they would cease operations.
