The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said that President Donald Trump has asked him to rebuild the U.S. relationship with Russia.

During a short stop over in Wellington, New Zealand, where he met with Prime Minister Bill English, Tillerson said that relations with Russia are at a low point and deteriorating and Trump has asked him to stabilize the relationship and rebuild trust between the two countries.

The New Zealand Prime Minister said he was reassured by Tillerson about the intention of the U.S. to engage in the Asia-Pacific region.
