Since then, Mr Tillerson has spoken to Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov who told the American that the United States strikes "play into the hands of extremists".

Host Chris Wallace followed up by pointing out that Assad is still committing mass murder, just with different weapons, and asking if the U.S. is now prepared to retaliate against him for attacks on civilians with conventional weapons as well.
"For his part, Tillerson on Friday said he was disappointed" by Russia's reaction "because it indicates their continued support" for the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
Tillerson conceded that removing Assad from power could "ultimately" require greater pressure, including military action, from the USA or an worldwide coalition, but he said that isn't the preferred choice. Haley said she doesn't see a political solution in Syria with Assad remaining as president, but that other US priorities were defeating Islamic State and to "get the Iranian influence out".
"It is a clumsy attempted demarche, which is ridiculous in terms of big diplomacy", Konstantin Kosachev, the chairman of the upper house of the Russian parliament's global affairs committee, said. In no way do we see peace in that area with Russian Federation covering up for Assad. He questioned the wisdom of backing rebels, suggested that Washington should work more closely with Russian Federation to fight Islamic State, and noted that while he didn't like him, "Assad is killing ISIS". "We now need a long-term solution to this conflict". Rex Tillerson is going on Wednesday so it can't be that we have moved to a Cold War position of no talking whatsoever.
