    the meaning of tout

    Hi,

    Quoted from CNN website as below:

    Lefkowitz's comments are at odds with Bush administration statements, which tout a recent agreement by North Korea at the six-party talks to abandon its nuclear program in exchange for aid and better relations with the United States as one of its few foreign policy successes.


    Could you please explain what the word "tout" means in this sentence?

    Thanks,
    Mona
