Rex Tillerson is in Germany for a meeting with G20 leaders on his first foreign trip as US secretary of state.

Mr Tillerson is expected to confirm that the US remains committed to Nato, at the gathering of ministers in Bonn.

He will also meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a time when US relations with Moscow are under the spotlight.

Officials said the secretary of state’s main intention was to listen to his G20 counterparts.
