Tillerson: It’s Difficult to Say Exactly What Russia’s Intentions Are in This Relationship

Business Insider

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson expressed a hope that President Donald Trump and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin would have a good exchange at this week’s summit in Germany, Sputnik News reports. 

"We are at the very beginning, and I would say at this point it’s difficult to say exactly what Russia’s intentions are in this relationship, and I think that’s the most important part of this meeting – is to have a good exchange between President Trump and President Putin over what they both see as the nature of this relationship between our two countries," Tillerson said in a comment to reporters aboard his flight to Hamburg.

"I think the important aspect of this is that this is where we began an effort […] to rebuild confidence between ourselves and Russia at the military level but also at the diplomatic level. So I think this is the effort that serves both of our interests as well as the broader interests of the international community."

The US official added that Washington hoped it would pave the way for other important discussions that would strengthen bilateral ties.
