Tillerson Says He and Trump Not 'Happy' About Russian Sanctions

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gestures as he delivers a joint statement with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Kiev Ukraine

At the same time, Tillerson added that Moscow's move would affect the US Department of State's work in Russian Federation.

The top US diplomat said he thinks President Donald Trump "accepts" the overwhelming vote by Congress, and will sign the bill into law. "And so I think the fact that they felt the need to take symmetrical action -- and that's the way they view it -- is that they were delayed in taking this action, and I think President Putin has said that".

Insisted the USA doesn't blame China for North Korea's nuclear behavior despite the American pressure on Beijing.

Some in Moscow and Washington had hoped relations between the former Cold War foes might improve under U.S. president Donald Trump, who has had warm words for President Vladimir Putin. Tillerson suggested the action was expected, given the domestic pressure on the Russian leader to retaliate for steps Obama took to punish Russia after US intelligence agencies concluded Moscow meddled in the election.

"I think the American people want the two most powerful nuclear nations in the world to have a better relationship", Tillerson said.

New Jaguar XJR575 revealed
Jaguar says it will make further announcements on the 2018 XJ lineup, including USA pricing information, later this year. The XJR575 will only be available in two colors, Velocity Blue and the Satin Corris Grey featured on this auto .

The Russian Foreign Ministry said if Washington takes new unilateral measures to reduce the number of Russian diplomats in the United States, a symmetrical response would follow.

The secretary of state said the administration has been attempting to exert "peaceful pressure" on North Korea, "because the options available to us are limited, particularly if we think we are operating under a short period of time". "Does it make our lives more hard? Of course it makes our life more hard".

The money is earmarked for the State Department's Global Engagement Center and Tillerson has not issued a request for it. $60 million of it will expire on September 30 if it is not transferred to the State Department by then, officials told Politico.

"The United States prefers a constructive relationship with Russian Federation based on mutual cooperation and common interest", Pence said.

President Donald Trump wants to cut State Department funding, so Tillerson is trying to spend less of it - not more. "We have differences, but I think if we're not having those differences I'm not sure that I am serving him". "There's a lot of unexpected things that happen to us in the world of diplomacy and we know how to adapt to that, we know how work with it". While he said frustrated Americans want the U.S.to get along with the nuclear-armed power, he did not address the deep suspicions at home about the president's intentions.
