Mexico ,July 14:
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday traveled to Mexico to hold talks with the country’s President Enrique Peña Nieto and president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to repair strained relations.This is the first high-level meeting between the Trump administration and incoming leader Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador amid heightened tensions between the two neighbors, reports CNN.
According to the report, Peña Nieto said after meeting with the US State Secretary that he had “expressed his concern about the policy of separation of migrant families implemented by the United States government” and asked the US delegation “for the rapid reunification of the families separated at the border.””The Trump administration will continue to work closely with Pena Nieto – with the Pena Nieto administration across our broad range of shared agendas. This includes our economic relationship, border and security issues, and the common regional and global priorities that each of our two countries hold dear,” Pompeo said.
“Mexico is an important and vital partner for regional and global challenges. As just one example, we’re working together to help our partners in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras reduce insecurity and violence, enhance their economic opportunity, and fight corruption in their countries. Progress in these areas will reduce the irregular migration .
