Washington should move from viewing Russia as a permanent adversary to a partner at times, Rex Tillerson, nominated to head the State Department under President-elect Donald Trump, said during a hearing of the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

Russia more than anything wants to establish its role in the global world order,” said Tillerson. “Russia is here, and Russia matters, and they are a force to be dealt with,” he added.

The nominee for State Department head also advocated a deterrent “stick” when asked about sanctions on Russia.

In carrying out the State Department’s diplomacy we need a strong deterrent in our hand…it is useful to have a stick in your hand, whether you use it or not it is useful to have.

Tillerson noted that while in his view Russia “poses a danger,” Washington still needs an “open and frank dialogue” with Moscow.

In particular, the former ExxonMobil CEO referred to “thwarting radical Islam” by “defeating ISIS [Islamic State/IS].”

Regarding Russian foreign policy, Tillerson noted that Moscow is still “not unpredictable in advancing its own interests.”
