United States says it hopes to prevent new war in Syria

US not seeking N Korea regime change, willing to talk: Tillerson

One former senior department official told Politico part of the delay is due to the new and convoluted decision-making process by Tillerson, a former ExxonMobil CEO. "I think the president accepts that, all indications are he will sign that bill and then we'll just work with it".

"I think from his perspective and how he looks in the eyes of his own people, he felt he had to do something", Tillerson said of the delayed response.

If nominated and confirmed, Brownfield will have a full plate; his responsibilities would include balancing the political tightrope of U.S. -Mexico relations under Trump, dealing with the roiling political crisis in Venezuela, managing the diplomatic end of the North American Free Trade Agreement renegotiations, and helping cement the historic Colombian peace deal brokered a year ago.

The secretary of state said the administration has been attempting to exert "peaceful pressure" on North Korea, "because the options available to us are limited, particularly if we think we are operating under a short period of time".

"President Trump will sign the Russian Federation sanctions bill soon", Pence said at a press conference this week in Georgia with Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili.

Tillerson said his relationship with Trump is very good despite reports of friction between the two.

In US first, scientists edit genes of human embryos
Many critics are anxious that the practice could lead to " designer babies " that are engineered with genetic enhancements. But many are opposed to these types of experiments over concerns it could be used to create " designer babies ".

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is not using nearly $80 million in earmarked money to combat terrorist propaganda and disinformation from America's adversaries, Politico is reporting. "Does it make our life more hard?"

Hammond, who serves as Tillerson's spokesman and on the department's policy planning staff, has said the unit hadn't explained how $60 million, which will expire next month, of the earmarked funds would be spent, but the former State Department official denied that was the case. "Of course it makes our life more hard". "There's a lot of unexpected things that happen to us in the world of diplomacy and we know how to adapt to that, we know how work with it".

The $60 million will expire on September 30 if not transferred to State by then, current and former State Department officials told POLITICO.

Tillerson has not filled almost 200 senior posts in the department, having resisted putting many people in place while he carries out a State Department restructuring so he can fulfill Trump's request to slash $10 billion from its budget. "He and I have differences of views on things like [the Iran nuclear deal] and how we should use it".
