Vice President Mike Pence has "no plans" to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, though he will look for ways to work with his country.

Pence told Bill O'Reilly on Fox News Wednesday that there are "no plans on my part" to meet Putin after the host suggested he should.

"We made a strong commitment to NATO. We also made it very clear that two things are true: We're going to hold Russia accountable for ending violence in eastern Ukraine," Pence continued. "But in the same breath, our president continues to believe that if there is a way that we can find common ground with Russia, particularly in the fight against ISIS, he's determined to pursue that."

He added that Trump is also determined to "end illegal immigration and bring sanctuary cities to an end.

"I know the president is going to evaluate every option we have in terms of the authority of the federal government to end a practice that is really … not contributing to the well-being of the nation or the safety and security of our people," Pence said.

Pence was recently announced as the University of Notre Dame's Commencement speaker this year.

"It is extraordinarily humbling to return to my home state and address the graduates of Notre Dame," Pence said Thursday in a statement, according to The Hill.

"The young adults in the Class of 2017 will leave school with the charge and opportunity to make new discoveries and assume leadership roles that will make a profound impact benefiting the lives of millions of people. The hopes of their parents and our country go with them as they enter a world filled with optimism for the future."
