Tillerson: It is hard to build relations with Russia
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during an interview that aired Sunday said the relationship between the U.S. and Russia is at its lowest point in decades, the Hill reports. "The president, I think, has made it clear that he feels it's important that we reengage with Russia," Tillerson told NBC's "Meet The Press."
"The relationship with Russia, as he has described, and I have described as well, is, I think, at an all-time low point since the end of the Cold War, with a very low level of trust."
Tillerson said he thinks it's in the interest of the American people and of those around the world that the U.S. tries to improve its relationship with Russia. "So the president, I think, is committed to at least make an effort in that regard," he said, "and he has certainly asked me to make an important effort as well."
