US envoy brushed off Trump's 'little criticism' upon arrival
"We had a lot of discussion at this North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting ... over what is the proper engagement with Russian Federation and I think there is broad consensus among all the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members that there is no normalisation of dialogue with Russian Federation today", he told reporters.
Tillerson has said there can be no normal USA relations with Russian Federation until Moscow ends its support for separatists in Ukraine and returned the Crimea region it annexed in 2014 - comments likely to reassure Western allies.
Before leaving, he angrily dismissed reports that members of US President Donald Trump's White House team want him to resign and be replaced by Central Intelligence Agency chief Mike Pompeo.
But Tillerson retorted: "This is a narrative that keeps coming up every six weeks, and I would say you all need to get some new sources, because your story keeps being wrong". While Trump said last week he was not leaving and Tillerson said the reports were "laughable", Trump has also said he alone determines US foreign policy, saying in a tweet on Friday: "I call the final shots".
The tweet came hours after Mr. Tillerson called reports that the White House wanted him to resign "laughable", even as one of his close aide planned to leave the State Department.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met USA military officers on Wednesday to prepare for a trip to better coordinate American security and diplomatic strategy in Africa.
Former Dem Staffer: Franken Tried To Kiss Me

Media reports on Thursday, first published by the New York Times, cited USA officials as saying that Trump has a plan to replace his embattled secretary of state with Pompeo, a former US congressman who now heads the Central Intelligence Agency.
