1 Min Read

BONN, Germany, Feb 16 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Thursday that the United States was ready to work with Russia if there were common areas for cooperation, but said Moscow had to adhere to commitments made over Ukraine.

"As we search for new common ground we expect Russia to honour its commitment to the Minsk agreements and work to de-escalate violence in Ukraine," Tillerson told reporters after meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.

He did not take questions. (Reporting by Andrea Shalal; editing by John Irish)
