NATO sees ‘no normalization’ of ties with Russia – Tillerson

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told a NATO foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels on Wednesday that the Western allies agree there has been “no normalization” of ties with Russia. “We had a lot of discussion at this NATO meeting… over what is the proper engagement with Russia and I think there is broad consensus among all the NATO members that there is no normalization of dialogue with Russia today,” Reuters quoted him as saying. Tillerson also said that Washington saw it as “Moscow’s task” to make sure Damascus takes part in UN-led peace talks on Syria.
