(MENAFN) Accused of being too cozy with the Kremlin, US President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for secretary of state took a firm line against Russia on Wednesday, warning it poses a danger internationally and will likely never be a US friend.

But while Rex Tillerson signalled his intention to be "clear-eyed" about Moscow, he declined to say whether he would back economic sanctions against Russia, and acknowledged he has not discussed with Trump the incoming administration's position on Washington's former Cold War foe.


The former ExxonMobil chief executive's remarks at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee came against a backdrop of controversy over alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election.
