U.S. Secretary of the State Rex Tillerson does not seek any complications in already tangible U.S-Russia tension. Heather Nauert, press secretary of Department of the State, said that as quoted by Radio Liberty.

‘We expect an attempt to move forward,’ she said.

Nauert reminded the press about the recent meetings of high-ranked U.S. officials with their Russian counterparts, as examples of continuing cooperation in jointly seeking the way out of the ongoing diplomatic crisis.
