Apparently, Tillerson is skipping the meeting for a visit by the Chinese president and THEN he'll visit his master Putin later in April.

Tillerson to skip NATO meet, visit Russia: report
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will not attend the April 5-6 meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) foreign ministers, according to a new report.
Tillerson will instead stay in the U.S. to be on hand for a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping, before traveling to Russia the following week, Reuters said Monday.
Reuters said it exclusively confirmed Tillersonís expected schedule with four current and former U.S. officials.
Sources told Reuters that Tillerson expects to miss what would be his first meeting in Brussels with representatives from 28 NATO members.
Tillerson will instead greet Xi alongside President Trump when the Chinese leader visits America on April 6-7.
