Nicholas Burns quotes

Oct 04 2017

This was a direct public, I thought, repudiation of what Tillerson said. It feeds the perception that Tillerson does not have a trusting relationship with the president, and that's very harmful.feedback

Sep 21 2017 - North Korea

What has been missing in Trump's North Korea strategy is a major diplomatic show of unity among these three countries. By standing firmly beside South Korea and Japan, President Trump can strengthen our strategic deterrence against Pyongyang.feedback

Sep 18 2017

This is going to be a slow-moving crisis. There's no short-term fix.feedback

Sep 18 2017

I think he's close to achieving that, unfortunately.feedback

Sep 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

The interesting thing about the Trump policy is the Trump policy I think has been right in what they've been trying to do. The president's public remarks have been off. Rocket Man' [is] probably not the best things to say even to a brutal leader like Kim Jong Un.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - Sanctions

Right now there are no good military options beyond defense.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - Sanctions

To look at companies, Chinese companies, that are cheating on the current international sanctions and make examples of them – that's probably going to be a more fruitful way to go forward.feedback

Aug 12 2017 - Trump-Putin

As a foreign service veteran, I find it lamentable that our great career diplomats are treated with such disrespect by their president.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - South Korea

It really is a time for diplomacy. But there's no American ambassador to South Korea, there's no secretary of State for East Asia. So, you've also got to fill out the ranks.feedback

Aug 10 2017 - Trump Presidency

If he was joking, he should know better. If he wasn't, it's unprecedented. A president has never defended the expulsion of our diplomats.feedback

Jul 10 2017 - G20

This is a group of the 20 most powerful leaders in the world in the 20 most powerful countries in the world. It conveys that impression and we are a democracy and that's also important here.feedback

Jul 04 2017 - Trump-Putin

If you try to curry favor offer concessions, pull back on the pressure, he'll take advantage. He'll see weakness in a vacuum.feedback

Jul 04 2017 - Trump-Putin

The president is boxed in. Why would you give Putin any kind of concession at the first meeting? What has he done to deserve that?feedback

Jun 28 2017

We have seen resilience levels raise instantly as society recognizes being targeted.feedback

Jun 28 2017

I do think that it's time for Congress and not the president to lead the response to Russia's cyberattack on the United States. If he continues to refuse to act, it's a dereliction of his most basic duty to protect the country.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Chemical weapons

I don't think we've seen a Trump strategy develop. There was the one airstrike on the airbase outside of Damascus after the chemical weapons attack. But other than that, you haven't seen the president explain to the American people what is at stake.feedback

Jun 01 2017

From a foreign policy perspective, it's a colossal mistake–an abdication of American leadership. I can't think of anything more destructive to our credibility than this.feedback

May 24 2017 - NATO

Trump needs to speak and act on this trip to inspire respect from his peers. They will be wondering if he is reliable, and can they trust his word, or is he handicapped by scandal.feedback

May 19 2017 - Egypt

I think you're going to see a bigger effort by the United States to promote arms sales to Saudi Arabia, to the other Gulf states, [and] to help Egypt and Jordan cope with this as well as Israel. You're seeing the United States struggle with the instability and the violence produced by the Arab revolutions of 2011.feedback

Apr 21 2017

I don't think we've ever had a transition event since World War I when it was nearly April and you have no deputy secretary of State named, no undersecretaries, no assistant secretaries – the entire leadership roster is vacant.feedback

Apr 07 2017

They've got to take this forward and articulate a strategy that capitalizes on the new credibility that they have.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - US, China relations

These are the two most important leaders of the world. Frankly, building some kind of relationship with Xi Jinping ought to be the first priority. That's a tall order. But I think the Trump administration is right to go there. I don't think the United States can or should go it alone. We have two very important allies in Japan and South Korea.feedback

Mar 03 2017

The new administration seeks deep cuts in State Department personnel at the wrong moment in history.feedback

Jun 28 2016

That's what we worry about with Britain leaving. Britain was the strongest American partner inside the EU.feedback

Nov 21 2006 - Lebanon

We were shocked by this assassination. We view it as an act of terrorism. We also view it as an act of intimidation and we believe it's the responsibility of all countries to support the Siniora government and to oppose those who try to divide Lebanon or return violence to political life in Lebanon.feedback
