Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Brussels on Friday meeting with NATO foreign ministers for the first time since he began at the State Department.

The meeting closes out a busy week for Tillerson, who earlier this week changed a human-rights policy attached to the sale of arms to Bahrain and announced that the fate of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “will be decided by the Syrian people.”

NPR’s Michele Kelemen (@michelekelemen) recaps the week with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson.

This segment aired on March 31, 2017.
