South Korea Defense Ministry'Established Fact: Pyongyang Warns of Looming War on Korean Peninsula
Meeting his European Union and NATO counterparts in Brussels on Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said worldwide sanctions and pressure on North Korea will remain the policy until the regime gives up its nuclear program.
"And Russia's continued use of hybrid warfare seeks to undermine Western institutions, and this stands as a significant obstacle to normalizing our relations, as well".
In principle, both Moscow and Washington have now expressed support for the idea of a United Nations peacekeeping mission to end the war between Kiev's government forces and Russian-backed separatists in the east of the country. Russian Federation denies accusations that it fomented the conflict and provided arms and fighters.
Tillerson made no mention on Thursday of Russia's efforts to meddle in the United States' 2016 presidential election, though he hinted at such activities a day earlier in Brussels, saying that Moscow's efforts to "undermine Western institutions" remained an obstacle to warmer ties with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
Nissan to begin field tests for 'robo-taxis'

"In eastern Ukraine we join our European partners in maintaining sanctions until Russian Federation withdraws its forces from the Donbass (region) and meets its Minsk commitments", Tillerson said, referring to a previous deal to promote peace in Ukraine.
"We should be clear about the source of this violence", Tillerson said, referring to increasing ceasefire violations recorded by OSCE monitors in eastern Ukraine.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is planning a trip to Africa in the first three months of next year, a senior aide said on Wednesday, amid speculation how long Tillerson might stay in the job. "Russian Federation is arming, leading, training and fighting alongside anti-government forces", he said.
In his speech, he referred to the 2015 Minsk ceasefire agreement, brokered in the Belarussian capital by France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine.
He said the Kremlin's annexation of Crimea in 2014 that sparked the Ukraine crisis has been the reason why the relationship between the two countries have soured.
"We will never accept Russia's occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea", Tillerson told the audience at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe event.
"Of all the challenges confronting the OSCE today, none is more challenging nor vexing than the situation in Ukraine", he warned, stressing the United States will never lift sanctions until Russian Federation returns control of Crimea and the disputed Donbass region to Ukraine.
