Tillerson to back diplomacy with North Korea, rejects Syria's Assad

2017/12/12 | 20:45

(Iraq Now News)- US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, in remarks later on Tuesday, plans to say that he is optimistic about North Korea denuclearization talks and that there is no role for President Bashar al-Assad in Syria’s future, a US official said.“The secretary is very optimistic that we can achieve denuclearization through negotiation.

We are in the middle of that path and that continues,” the official told reporters ahead of two planned speeches by Tillerson.

This comes after the recent nuclear tests by North Korea that allegedly could reach the US.

Bashar al-Assad is also responsible for the death of thousands of Syrian civilians by his forces that use chemical weapons frequently in their skirmishes and Iranian-backed militias and the displacement of million others, either internally or abroad.
