US, Russia unlikely to 'ever' be friends: Nominee Tillerson


WorldDonald Trump's secretary of state pick Rex Tillerson warned during his confirmation hearing Wednesday that Washington and Moscow could either be adversaries or partners, but likely would never rise to the level of “friends.” “We're not likely to ever be friends,” Tillerson, until recently the chief executive of ExxonMobil and who has close ties to Russia, told senators at his confirmation hearing. “Our value systems are starkly different,” he said, although he stressed dialogue between the two powers was critical for moving the relationship from a more adversarial position to a partnership in order to “bring down the temperature” around current points of conflict.
