new offer to work with Russia over the Syria crisis on Wednesday. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson saying, Washington is open to enforcing no fly zones in the war torn country, in coordination with Moscow. Joint efforts may also include on the ground truce monitors, and delivery of humanitarian aid to Syrians.
All of those likely talking points on Friday at an expected meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 in Germany. Tillerson spoke to reporters before taking off for the summit.>> I think that the important aspect of this is that, this is where we've begun an effort to begin to rebuild confidence.
Between ourselves and Russia, at the military to military level, but also the diplomatic level.>> Tillerson didn't bring up the future of Syrian President Basharl Assad, who the US largely blames for six years of civil war, calling for him to step down. Russia is Assad's major ally, and Tillerson did say Moscow has an obligation to prevent the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
Washington hit a Syrian air base with a missile strike in April, after it accused Assad's government of killing dozens in a chemical attack.
