Venezuela's situation likely to be part of Mexico-Jamaica talks

Venezuela's political situation could well be on the agenda during a trip by Mexico's foreign minister to Jamaica next month during which Mexican oil sales are likely to be discussed.
 
Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray will travel to Jamaica and other Caribbean nations in March, as part of efforts to erode Venezuela's oil-based influence in the Caribbean.
 
Mexico has been looking at the possibility of replacing Venezuela's Petrocaribe programme that provided cheap loans for oil to Caribbean nations and has helped Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro retain diplomatic support in the region.
 
His visit will coincide with a regional conference of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), due to be held in Jamaica on March 5-8.
