  • Mexicans protest the government of U.S. President Donald Trump

Tillerson's comments follow remarks by USA national security adviser H.R. McMaster, who said there was already evidence of Russian meddling in Mexican elections scheduled for July. Perhaps he should just cut off their foreign aid, the president groused.

One of Tillerson's first trips as secretary was to Mexico a year ago, but this will be the first time he travels further south in the role.

Cooperation between China and Latin American countries is based on equality, reciprocity, openness and inclusiveness, it added.

"We do not seek short-term deals with lopsided returns, we seek partners with shared values and visions to create a safe, secure and prosperous hemisphere", said Tillerson.

The Mexican government has repeatedly expressed opposition to Trump's proposals to curb illegal immigration and have Mexico pay for a reinforced border wall. "We do have some differences, as every other country does, but we've been working very closely", said Videgaray. "They don't know what we are made of", Maduro said.

"Let's make sure we have systems in place where we understand who's coming into the country", Tillerson said.

Speaking on a call with reporters earlier this week, a senior State Department official declined to say whether more sanctions were under consideration, adding that the USA would "use all economic, political, and diplomatic tools at our disposal".

"All I can say to you is that we know that Russian Federation has fingerprints in a number of countries around the world", Tillerson said during a news conference with Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray. Also, if Tillerson speaks on American policy, and Trump says something else, foreigners are all but certain to accept the president's version over the secretary of state's.

"It will have to be the Venezuelans themselves who find a peaceful route, a peaceful solution to this crisis", he said. "He doesn't change his speech, regardless of what might be happening in the world".

Videgaray, who said Mexico would use all available diplomatic means to address the situation in Venezuela, spoke after meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland in Mexico City.

Despite the tensions, Videgaray and Freeland lavished praise on Tillerson, though not Trump, with the Canadian foreign minister referring to the American secretary of state as the voice for the respect of worldwide rules.
