Crisscrossing Latin America over the past week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has tried to rally support for stiffer sanctions against Venezuela, including a possible embargo on its oil exports, but had only mixed success.

On Sunday, he leaves for six days in five countries in the Middle East.

Next month, he hits the road for 12 days in Africa.
