U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson addressed Mexican authorities on Friday calling on them to pay attention to Russian meddling in the elections around the world, as Reuters reports. 

Speaking in Mexico City, Tillerson said European countries had noticed that Russia had its fingerprints on a number of elections.

“We hear this from our European counterparts,” Tillerson said. “My advice would be ... pay attention to what’s happening.”

The Secretary of State is not the first official to draw attention to Russia’s meddling in the upcoming election in Mexico. Previously advisor to the US President for National Security Herbert McMaster said there were signs of "Russian intervention" in the upcoming election in Mexico. 

The Mexican presidential election is to be held this July.
