    Default parallel tours

    The US president has pointedly refused to directly respond to Mr Chavez's comments as they make parallel tours of the region.

    What does `parallel tours' mean in this sentence?

    Please explain it.

    The are travelling in the same region, but their routes are different. Chavez is near Bush, but they don't meet.
