'Mexico relationship with Trump closer than with previous United States governments'

US touts vision for free and prosperous Americas

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has urged Mexico to be on the lookout for Russian meddling in its elections, citing reports of Moscow's interference in the electoral process of countries around the world.

"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. "It does not represent the vision of millions of Venezuelans".

At a political rally later in the day, Maduro said he would not be bowed by Tillerson's comments.

The U.S. and its two neighbors have been hitting speed bumps over trade negotiations. Tillerson will be visiting Argentina and Peru on his Latin America tour, which begins late Thursday in Mexico and will end next week with stops in Colombia and Jamaica. You know, we think they're our friends and we send them massive aid.

"I think in many ways the relationship today is more fluid, it's closer than it was with previous administrations, which might be surprising to some people but that's a fact of life", said Mexico's top diplomat.

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.

H&M also said it is considering asking share holders to reinvest their dividends to support its own investment plans. The store closings are the greatest in number in 20 years for the company, according to Bloomberg .

The oilman-turned-diplomat recalled that his first trip overseas was to Peru as a member of the University of Texas Longhorn band. He said immigration in the US has "gotten out of normal order", which is why President Donald Trump is pushing Congress to "fix these defects that have risen over the years".

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

Between January and November 2017, bilateral trade between the USA and Mexico was greater than 470 billion US dollars, according to official figures.

In this budget , a long-awaited thrust has also been given to expand the suburban network, particularly in Mumbai and Bengaluru. Railway minister Piyush Goyal said his ministry continues to focus on the use of technology to ensure safety on its network.

Pushing for deeper trade ties, Tillerson characterized Chinese investment in the region as a bad deal, with any agreement likely to benefit only Beijing. "We seek partners with shared values".
