    Tillerson “derided Russia for selling weaponry to unfriendly, authoritarian governments in the region.”

    Tillerson must know a thing or two about support to authoritarian governments in Latin America. He is worried about competition.

    “Latin America doesn't need new imperial powers...,” Tillerson said. ”China...involves trading short-term gains for long-term dependency.''

    Sure. In Tillerson's view, Latin America has enough of imperial powers as it is and should remain as is. Never heard before an U.S. official reflecting so candidly on the history of the last century.
