No policy changes came out of last week's summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Friday, adding he had also not been given new direction on Syria.

"I have talked immediately after the Helsinki summit -- both the (White House) chief of staff and the national security adviser, called me," Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon. "There have been no policy changes that have come out of it."
