Stoltenberg: NATO not distracted by rumors of Tillerson firing
Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said he’s looking forward to talks with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and that the military alliance is too focused on security issues to be distracted by rumors about Tillerson’s future.
According to Stoltenberg, the alliance "and NATO ministers are able to focus on the core tasks of the job we have to do despite any speculation and rumors".
Stoltenberg praised Tillerson’s "strong personal commitment to the trans-Atlantic bond and to NATO," the Washington Post reported.
President Donald Trump denied Friday that he wants to oust Tillerson, calling reports to that effect 'fake news'.
