At the same time, Tillerson added that Moscow's move would affect the US Department of State's work in Russian Federation.

When Trump signed the bill on Wednesday, he said it was "seriously flawed" because "it encroaches on the executive branch's authority to negotiate" and "strike good deals for the American people".

Both Tillerson and Trump have worked to strike a deal with Russian Federation that would allow relations between the two countries to improve and have avoided rocking the boat.

He was unable to show that the US has fulfilled President Donald Trump's objective of a new, more cooperative relationship between the former Cold War foes, noting only modest efforts in Syria as a sign the nations share some common goals.

"We confirm the information that the United States side circulated yesterday: the meeting between Sergey Lavrov and Rex Tillerson in Manila is being prepared by us, it remains to agree on a specific time and some other organizational aspects", Ryabkov said.

Most of the money - $60 million - was earmarked for the State Department's Global Engagement Center and has been sitting with the Pentagon, and it will expire if it is not transferred before September 30.

Senate vote fails to repeal, replace Obamacare
If today's vote is unsuccessful, the Senate will continue voting on amendments this week in hopes of passing one. It is based on a plan that Congress passed in 2015 knowing that it would face President Barack Obama's veto .

In another sign of US concern about the North, the Trump administration published a notice Wednesday in the Federal Register detailing a new ban on Americans traveling to North Korea. "Does it make our life more hard?"

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is not using nearly $80 million in earmarked money to combat terrorist propaganda and disinformation from America's adversaries, Politico is reporting. "Of course it makes our life more hard". "He and I have differences of views on things like [the Iran nuclear deal] and how we should use it".

The article added that R.C. Hammond, a Tillerson aide, "suggested the money is unwelcome because any extra funding for programs to counter Russian media influence would anger Moscow, according to a former senior State Department official".

Tillerson is travelling to Asia this week, where he will continue his drive to increase "peaceful pressure on the regime in North Korea to have them develop a willingness to sit and talk to us and others".

Tillerson defended his plans to reorganize the State Department - a process that will likely see steep budget and staffing cuts - as necessary to keep the agency relevant in the 21st century.

"After the Ministers endorse the Framework, we expect them to task the Joint Working Group to begin discussions on the actual Code", said DFA spokesman Robespierre Bolivar.
