US 'Wants No Escalation With Russia', Looks for Dialogue

Vice President Mike Pence met with Stoltenberg shortly after, reassuring the alliance that the US would meet its treaty obligations if necessary. In March 2016 he said NATA "was set up in a different time" and that the US should rethink its commitment to the alliance because it was too expensive.

It will further strain United States relations with Russian Federation, which has described Montenegro's accession as a "provocation".

Tillerson's trip has been dominated by USA criticism of Russia's unwavering support for Syrian President Bashar Assad following a gruesome poison-gas attack in northern Syria last week blamed on Assad's forces.

The deadly toxic gas attack has been widely blamed on Syria's President Assad and prompted the United States to retaliate with a cruise missile strike on one of the country's airbases.

It comes asUS secretary of state Rex Tillerson met Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and later President Vladimir Putin for talks over the escalating crisis.

"Trust at the working level, especially at the military level, hasn't gotten better; rather, it's deteriorated", Putin said in an interview with the Mir TV channel that aired Wednesday.

Wednesday's meeting was the first in-person encounter for these leaders, but not their first time speaking. The FBI meanwhile is investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and whether there was coordination between Trump campaign officials and Russian operatives. "No. 2, the countries aren't paying what they're supposed to pay", Trump said in January.

"President Trump congratulates the Montenegrin people for their resilience and their demonstrated commitment to NATO's democratic values", the White House said. "Right now the world is a mess". In response to a question he said "it's certainly possible" that Syria carried out the attack without its' ally Russia's knowledge, but added "I think it's probably unlikely".
