Rex Tillerson - Fearing Loss of Influence?

Today United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrives in Malaysia for a two-day working visit. His three-nation Southeast Asian tour began in Manila over the weekend. Its expected that topping of his agenda during his visits will be the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, maritime security, and counterterrorism.
