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

"China, as it does in emerging markets throughout the world, offers the appearance of an attractive path to development, but in reality this often involves trading short-term gains for long-term dependency", Tillerson said in a speech at the University of Texas.

Mexico's Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray told a news conference on Friday that Mexico's relationship with the United States is tighter with Donald Trump's government than previous administrations.

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

It was the latest incident in which Trump has undercut Tillerson, America's top diplomat, by announcing policies or insults at inopportune moments.

"It will have to be the Venezuelans themselves who find a peaceful route, a peaceful solution to this crisis", he said.

Also after Friday's meeting, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson advised Mexico to be wary of Russian interference in elections around the world.

"We will not give in". 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. Trump has imposed individual and economic sanctions on Venezuela's government, accusing it of rights abuses and corruption.

Speaking ahead of a five-nation Latin America tour, the US diplomat insisted the Trump administration was not advocating "regime change", but suggested the Venezuelan leader could flee to ally Cuba. Last year, as Tillerson returned from delicate talks with China about cooperating to confront North Korea, Trump said Twitter that Tillerson should "stop wasting your time" with diplomacy on the matter.
