Venezuela Slams 'Coup' Remarks Made by Secretary of State Tillerson

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

Separately, the US Treasury's top economic diplomat, David Malpass, on Friday accused China of enabling poor governance in Venezuela by propping up the socialist government of President Nicolas Maduro through murky oil-for-loan investments.

Freeland said that uncertainty around renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement was not good for business, but that it was important to get it right.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray on Friday and discussed security and migration, Mexico's government said.

In contrast, US protectionism is making it harder for Latin American countries to export their products to the United States, the analyst said.

"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 ministry said. Tillerson's stop in Jamaica is aimed at bolstering support from divided Caribbean nations to force Venezuela into talks with opposition leaders. Maduro claims the United States and opposition parties are part of an worldwide right-wing conspiracy to oust him and get their hands on the OPEC nation's oil wealth.

Speaking ahead of a five-nation Latin America tour, the USA diplomat insisted the Trump administration was not advocating "regime change", but suggested the Venezuelan leader could flee to ally Cuba.

"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.
