Tillerson on Russia: No 'free pass' on election interference

The Washington Post first reported that the president had revealed "code word" level information about Isis plots to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister at a White House meeting last week.

"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".

US intelligence has also accused the Kremlin of directing a hacking and influence campaign aimed at helping Trump, who says he wants to improve ties with Moscow, defeat Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the November presidential election.

"I make a distinction between values and policy", Tillerson said on Meet the Press.

The secretary of state said it was one of many issues that undermined trust between the two countries and that Russia's role was "well documented" and not in question.

In his conversations with the Russian officials, Trump appeared to be boasting about his knowledge of the looming threats, telling them he was briefed on "great intel every day", an official with knowledge of the exchange said, according to the Post.

He added, however, that it was "inconclusive" whether this had any impact on the election.

Even so, "it's in the interest of the American people, it's in the interest of Russian Federation, the rest of the world, that we do something to see if we can not improve the relationship between the two greatest nuclear powers in the world", Tillerson said.

Kislyak is a major figure in the investigation of Russian interference. "I can't really answer that". Afterward few said any new information emerged about the increasingly tense U.S. standoff with Pyongyang.

He declined to say whether Trump, who in the past has criticized human-rights abuses in Saudi Arabia, would raise that issue during a planned speech in Riyadh. "A policy has to be tailored to the individual situation".

The best way to promote American values, Tillerson maintained, is to achieve U.S.

"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.
