WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Wednesday it was important for U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to have a “good exchange” over how they see the nature of the bilateral relationship.

“I would say at this point it’s difficult to say exactly what … Russia’s intentions are in this relationship,” Tillerson said before he left Washington for the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

“And I think that’s the most important part of this meeting is to have a good exchange between President Trump and President Putin over what they both see as the nature of this relationship between our two countries,” he said.
