Secretary of State Tillerson arrives in Russia to discuss Syria

MOSCOW, RUSSIA (KSWO)- Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is set to arrive in Moscow today amid tensions between the US and Russia over the conflict in Syria.

Several state department officials have spoken to CNN about Tillerson's plan for the trip. They say he plans to highlight Russia's role in the Syrian government's actions in an attempt to shame Putin into trying to end the conflict.

Last week, before the US strike on the Syrian base, Tillerson said he fully believed that Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad was responsible for last week's chemical attack on Syrian citizens.
