USA: Tillerson emphasises DC's commitment to Texas in wake of Hurricane Harvey

Sigmar Gabriel, German Foreign Minister (English): «Always my pleasure.» Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State (English): «I just wanted to make a quick statement about the situation down in the Texas Gulf Coast and now Louisiana. Again being native Texan, my wife and I still make our home in Texas and we have a lot of family and friends that have been directly impacted, well also just millions... Еще and millions of Texans who are really really suffering right now. So, we simply ask that all Americans keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I think the state of Texas is doing a remarkable remarkable job, in dealing with what is an extraordinarily difficult situation of historic proportions. As you know the president is on his way down today. I think he has plans to come back a second time, I think indicating the seriousness of the situation but also the commitment of the federal government to provide all the assets that the state of Texas needs to respond to what's going to be a very, very, very long rebuilding process, so I would ask that all Americans keep them in their prayers please. Thank you. Journalist (English): «How provocative or dangerous do you see the latest launch by North Korea?» Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State (English): «We'll have more to say about that later» US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gave a statement to the press in Washington DC, Tuesday, concerning the situation on the Texan Gulf Coast, asking “Americans to keep them [Texans] in their prayers” as he stood next to German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, after the culmination of talks. Tillerson, who is a native of Texas, praised the response to Hurricane Harvey by the Texas government in what he asserted was “an extraordinarily difficult situation of historic proportions.» The US secretary of state added that US President Donald Trump would be visiting the areas affected today, but would also be returning for a second visit “indicating the seriousness of the situation but also the commitment of the federal government to provide all assets that the state of Texas needs to respond.” The US Coast Guard have reportedly rescued at least 2,000 people, while Houston's emergency services have reportedly received nearly 6,000 distress calls, in what is the strongest storm to have hit Texas in more than 50 years.
