Rex W. Tillerson quotes

I recognize there are many pressing challenges in the Middle East, but defeating ISIS is the United States' number one goal in the region. When everything is a priority, nothing is a priority. We must continue to keep our focus on the most urgent matter at hand.feedback

As we stabilize areas encompassing ISIS's physical caliphate in Iraq and Syria, we also must prevent their seeds of hatred from taking root elsewhere. We must ensure ISIS cannot gain or maintain footholds in new regions of the world.feedback

You've asked me a lot of questions here that I didn't answer, and I'm not answering them because we have some very, very complex strategic issues to make our way through with important countries around the world, and we're not going to get through them by just messaging through the media.feedback

We want to ensure at all times, if confirmed, that the secretary of state and the State Department is fully transparent with the public. We get through them in face-to-face meetings behind closed doors. We can be very frank, open, and honest with one another, and then we'll go out and we'll have something to share about that. But the truth of the matter is all of the tactics and all of the things we're going to do, you will know them after they've happened.feedback

In the face of this ever-escalating threat, it is clear that a different approach is required. Part of the purpose of my visit to the region is to exchange views on a new approach. Efforts towards North Korea to achieve peaceful stability over the last two decades have failed to make us safer. Let me be very clear: the policy of strategic patience has ended.feedback

If they elevate the threat of their threat weapons program to a level that we believe requires action then that option is on the table.feedback

Let me be very clear: the policy of strategic patience has ended. We are exploring a new range of security and diplomatic measures. All options are on the table. If they elevate the threat of their weapons programme to a level that we believe requires action, that option is on the table. We believe these actions are unnecessary and troubling. We also believe it is not the way for a regional power to help resolve what is a serious threat for everyone. So we hope China will alter its position on punishing South Korea. We hope they will work with us to eliminate the reason THAAD is required.feedback

20 years of talks with North Korea have brought us to where we are today. It's important that the leadership of North Korea realize that their current pathway of nuclear weapons and escalating threats will not lead to their objective of security and economic development. That pathway can only be achieved by denuclearizing, giving up their weapons of mass destruction, and only then will we be prepared to engage with them in talks.feedback

Diplomatic and other efforts of the past 20 years to bring North Korea to a point of denuclearization have failed. It is clear that a different approach is required.feedback

North Korea is behaving very badly. They have been 'playing' the United States for years. China has done little to help!feedback

We will do this by reviewing and selecting our priorities, using the available resources, and putting our people in a position to succeed. We have a genuine opportunity to set a new course.feedback

Clearly the level of spending that the State Department has been undertaking, particularly in this past year, is simply not sustainable. As time goes by, there will be fewer military conflicts that the U.S. will be directly engaged in.feedback

I'm confident that with the input of the men and women of the State Department we are going to construct a way forward that allows us to be much more effective, much more efficient and be able to do a lot with fewer dollars.feedback

Trilateral cooperation is critical in particular as we address North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missiles programme.feedback
