Tillerson vows ‘quick wins’ for US diplomacy

BRUSSELS: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson attempted to strike an upbeat tone Tuesday as he embarked on his first foreign trip since the White House called his future into question, reports AFP.

Tillerson arrived in Brussels for talks with EU and NATO leaders trailed by reports that President Donald Trump is frustrated with his performance and plans to sack him.

Before he began his official program in Brussels, Tillerson met US diplomats serving in the city to reassure them about his much-criticised efforts to renew US policy.

He admitted that work to recruit new senior talent to the State Department to deliver Trump’s agenda had been slow, but he insisted his reform agenda was picking up speed.
