In a statement the Chinese government blasted the US, describing Tillerson's comments as going "against the truth", and charging the USA with displaying "disrespect to the vast number of Latin American countries".
A more common motif accompanying Tillerson's travels will be the question of Venezuela and the country's president, Nicolas Maduro, despite a pre-agreement reached between the government and political opposition in the Dominican Republic Wednesday.
Venezuela is in its fifth year of a worsening political and economic crisis. She said it's time for all sides to see that the USA and Latin American nations are permanent neighbors.
Tillerson has adopted an optimistic approach, whatever Trump's rhetoric.
Tillerson now is wrapping up his visit to Mexico and will leave Mexico on Friday afternoon to continue his tour to Argentina, Peru, Colombia and Jamaica, where he will complete his five-nation tour on February 7.

Russia, he said, "continues to sell arms and military equipment to unfriendly regimes who do not share or respect democratic values".
But Mr. Maduro shrugged off the worldwide pressure last month, when the Constituent Assembly under his control pushed forward the date of the presidential election to April. "We stand with the region as a steady, enduring partner".
