Mexico is trying to prove itself a good US ally in hopes of getting a favorable outcome from renegotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and the United States.

"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.

Videgaray said Mexico's relationship with the Trump administration is "closer" than it was with former President Barack Obama's administration.

"Venezuela and Cuba reminded us that... we must prioritize and promote democratic values", according to Tillerson. Trump insists on building what he calls "a great border wall" that would further separate Mexico from the U.S. In his State of the Union address earlier this week, Trump emphasized his plans for a continued U.S. crackdown on immigrants. They're about issues like how many components in a auto have to be American. "In their pursuit of money and power, TCOs leave death and destruction in their wake".

"The development of China-Latin America ties does not target or reject any third party, nor does it affect the interests of third parties in Latin America", the release stated while urging the United States to abandon its "outdated concepts of zero-sum games and look at the development of China-Latin America relations in an open and inclusive manner". "The United States stands in vivid contrast".

NAFTA, which Trump alleges costs American jobs, could also loom over Tillerson's meeting with Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray and Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland on Friday in Mexico City.

The official also stressed that his country's investment in and financial cooperation with Latin American countries were in full accordance with commercial rules and local laws and regulations.

On Thursday, US State Secretary Rex Tillerson expressed concern over a growth of Beijing's influence in the emerging markets in Latin America and said that China "offers the appearance of an attractive path to development, but in reality this often involves trading short-term gains for long-term dependency".

Tillerson also said that Latin American countries do not need "new imperial powers that only seek only to benefit their own people".

After visiting Buenos Aires and the Argentine mountain resort town of Bariloche, Tillerson is scheduled to head to Lima to meet with Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski on issues including the eighth annual Summit of the Americas, set for April 13-14 in Lima.
