President Trump not 'very happy' with Russia sanctions bill, says Tillerson

"The action by the Congress to put these sanctions in place, and the way they did, neither the president nor I are very happy about that", Tillerson told reporters.

"The spirit of the agreement has been violated", Tillerson said, adding that that view is shared among the European countries that were also parties to the agreement.

"We are trying to convey to the North Koreans: 'We are not your enemy, we are not your threat". "We hope that، at some point، they will begin to understand that، and we would like to sit and have a dialogue with them about the future that will give them the security they seek and the future economic prosperity for North Korea، but that will then promote economic prosperity throughout Northeast Asia".

But one Tillerson aide, R.C. Hammond, suggested the department might also be hesitant about using the money for one of its intended purposes: Pushing back on the Kremlin.

Since February, State Department officials have been urging Tillerson to unlock $60 million meant for the unit from the Pentagon and another $19.8 million allotted for the program in the department, according to the former senior State Department official. Though ostensibly in retaliation for a similar US move a year ago under President Barack Obama, the Russian action came just after Congress voted to slap Russia with more economic sanctions, and to include new requirements making it far harder for Trump to ease the penalties.

Pence said Trump would sign the sanctions into law "very soon", and that states in eastern Europe, including Ukraine, the Baltic states and Georgia should see that as a further of American commitment to their independence and sovereignty.
