State Department Alarmed by Russia's Growing Influence in Latin America

39
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson expressed concern about the increasing influence of Russia and China in Latin America, he warned the countries of the region against growing dependence, reports RIA News.




Tillerson goes on a week-long tour of Latin America.

Russia's growing presence in the region is also a concern; it continues to sell weapon and military equipment for unfriendly regimes that do not share our respect for democratic values. Our region must be resilient to distant forces that do not share the values ​​of this region,
he said, speaking at the University of Texas at Austin.

The state secretary emphasized that Washington, in contrast to Moscow and Beijing, “does not seek immediate benefits,” but seeks a mutually beneficial partnership “for the prosperity of the Western Hemisphere.”

He noted that China offers Latin America "an attractive way of development" through the use of public resources, which lead to "prolonged dependence on Beijing and damage the production sector of these countries", in addition, "reduce the wages of workers and lead to unemployment."

In reality, they (PRC) offer short-term gains through long-term dependency. Latin America does not need new imperial forces that seek only their own benefit,
declared Tillerson.

It is planned that before February 7, the foreign minister will visit Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia and Jamaica.

          In China, there is a separation of concepts such as state and strategic borders. The former are recognized as unshakable and indestructible, and the latter, in fact, have no limits. This is the country's sphere of interests, and it extends to almost all corners of the globe. This concept of strategic boundaries is the basis for modern Chinese foreign policy.
          and squeeze them out of there peacefully fail

          I forgot the little dog to add: - "Only the old imperial power-USA is needed there, which, for its own benefit, will rob."

      It seems that US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson decided to attribute the vile policy of mattress to China and Russia.

    They are afraid of the same measures that they themselves apply to Russia. Why are they "surprised" by Russia's concern about Amer’s activity in the countries of the former Union and the Warsaw Pact?

                  What is there to argue - that's right. Only with us, "Tea is not basting cabbage soup, we are pursuing tea policy!" L. Filatov - something like that.

    The trouble is not in the growing influence of Russia, but in the conditions for the growth of this influence, which the United States carefully created for years and decades in the region.
    You can’t deceive, spread rot, ruin and humiliate neighbors indefinitely simply because you print the money they use.
    No need to be rude and elevate lies and rudeness to the rank of state policy, then you will not have to look for the extreme.
    Even the 45th shaggy president began his work with the construction of a fence between the states and Mexico ...
    And now again Russia is to blame.
    There is nothing to blame for the mirror, if the mug is crooked ...

    expressed concern over the increasing influence of Russia and China in Latin America
    We are not alone in expressing concern. From time to time, this has to be done and the Americans understand that they cannot solve the problem differently. One concern superimposed on the other leads to a total 0.

    Americans should start studying urgently historical psychologyso that the American people do not imperceptibly cross the line separating the normal state of an individual from an abnormal one when he turns into a crowd and shouts “Yes, hello leader!”, raising his hand in a Nazi salute, seeing only the same raised hands nearby, holy at the same time believing in the infallibility of his leader, one command of which is enough to start killing dissidents. And the fact that such a leader will soon appear in America already, alas, does not raise any doubts.
    Bus excursions to Ukraine would be organized, perhaps, for American citizens.

    Already, Russia was declared to intervene in the elections in Mexico, now Russia probably wants to put its president in Mexico and place its C 400 and Iskander complexes on the US border, and maybe even worse. Shake with fear pin *** tan.

    They don’t like it ... But there was no need to rock the boat, no need to climb at all to us. Well, with China, the fellows themselves raised a dragon, only it somehow outgrew. Now try to put it on a chain, and we'll see. Values ​​of the region, Latin America? These are such values ​​when they squeezed out half of the country from Mexico, when they supported Pinochet in Chile, when they brought Cuba with their own habits, that she rebelled when Venezuela blocked the oxygen, and so with each country in the region, each managed to distinguish itself. Well, work hard, now it's our turn.
