Press Releases: On Sanctions Legislation

Press Statement
Rex W. Tillerson
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
July 29, 2017


The near unanimous votes for the sanctions legislation in Congress represent the strong will of the American people to see Russia take steps to improve relations with the United States. We hope that there will be cooperation between our two countries on major global issues and these sanctions will no longer be necessary.

We will work closely with our friends and Allies to ensure our messages to Russia, Iran, and North Korea are clearly understood.
