US, Mexico agree to work together on bilateral security

Secretary of State-nominee Rex Tillerson testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. Trump's nomination of Tillerson for secretary of state is headed toward Senate confirmation after several Democrats crossed

Tillerson later held a closed-door meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto during a time when relations have also been strained by USA threats to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

"The corrupt and hostile regime of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela clings to a false dream and antiquated vision for the region that has already failed its citizens", Tillerson said Thursday at the University of Texas at Austin during a stop en route to Mexico.

China "is using economic statecraft to pull the region into its orbit", an American official was reported stating.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made a renewed call for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's regime to face worldwide isolation, a theme he plans to pursue at each stop in a six-nation tour of Latin America.

Tillerson "is a respectful person who wants to help those who are in limbo to reach a solution", said Steven Goldstein, undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs.

Scientists have developed an interactive online tool to help breast cancer patients better understand their treatment options. And she said that doctors routinely test the tumors of patients to assess the cancer's risk of recurrence.

Tillerson, in Mexico on the first leg of a trip that will also take in Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Jamaica, did not repeat his comments about military action, but reiterated a call for Maduro to reinstate a legislative assembly and hold free and fair elections. "Latin America does not need a new imperial power", he said.

Padrino said Tillerson's Latin American tour was aimed at fomenting a regional "intervention" against Venezuela's socialist government.

Tillerson, who received a standing ovation at the university, his alma mater, outlined a strategy that focuses on ramping up worldwide pressure on Maduro to agree to credible elections to ease the country's economic and political crisis.

"We will not give in". That involvement included people in Russian Federation buying 3,000 United States political ads and placing 80,000 Facebook posts seen by 126 million Americans over two years, Facebook has said. Maduro claims the United States and opposition parties are part of an global right-wing conspiracy to oust him and get their hands on the OPEC nation's oil wealth. The Mexican Coordinator of Solidarity with Venezuela rejected the presence here of the representative of the Donald Trump administration, and declared him persona non-grata. Trump has imposed individual and economic sanctions on Venezuela's government, accusing it of rights abuses and corruption.

Discussing Venezuela, the top USA diplomat said militaries in Latin America often "handled" transitions from bad governments, but insisted he was not advocating "regime change". "We do not seek short-term deals with lopsided returns".
