Washington. President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, said on Wednesday he would support maintaining U.S. sanctions on Russia until the United States further develops its approach to the country, Reuters reported.
"I would leave things in the status quo so we are able to convey this can go either way," Tillerson said during his confirmation hearing, in response to a question on whether he thought right now is the right time to lift sanctions on Russia.

AFP: Trump's secretary of state pick hits out at China

11 January 2017 | 17:41 | FOCUS News Agency
Washington. Donald Trump's secretary of state pick Rex Tillerson hit out at China Wednesday during his Senate confirmation hearing, warning that the Asian power pursues its "own goals" and has not sufficiently helped rein in North Korea, AFP reported.
"China has proven a willingness to act with abandon in the pursuit of its own goals which at times has put it in conflict with American interests. We have to deal with what we see, not what we hope," Tillerson told a US Senate panel.
"It has not been a reliable partner in using its full influence to curb North Korea," he added. Beijing is a close Pyongyang ally and is seen as critical in helping contain the pariah state's nuclear activities.
But the former oil executive said disagreements with Beijing on some issues should not preclude "productive partnership" on other matters.
