US-Russia Ties ‘Worst in Decades’ After Tillerson Visits Moscow, Diplomat Says
American diplomat Chas Freeman said to Sputnik that the visit of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Russia has deepened contradictions between Moscow and Washington.
Only a further surprise reversal of policy by President Donald Trump could revive hopes of improved ties, Freeman observed.
Chas Freeman is a lifetime director of the Atlantic Council and served as US Deputy Chief of Mission and Charge d’affaires at the US embassies in Beijing and Bangkok. Freeman also held several senior level positions at the US Department of Defense.
