Daily Mail: Tillerson is frozen out in Moscow: Two hours of talks with Putin end with nothing to show as Kremlin refuses to admit Assad gassed his own people - then lectures him on Iraq and Libya
* Putin met with Tillerson just before his departure from Moscow after yo-yoing the American diplomat around for days
* But no pictures have been released of the two-hour encounter in a caluclated snub
* US and Russia continued to disagree about Bashar al-Assad's use of chemical weapons on Wednesday
* Kremlin is insisting that the Syrian dictator did not gas his own people and the Trump administration is asserting that he did
* Talks got off to an icy start - Tillerson's counterpart Sergey Lavrov wanted to know the 'real intentions' of the US
* Russia has questions about America's 'very ambiguous' and contradictory' ideas
