Jared Kushner's Real-Estate Firm Sought Money Directly From Qatar Government Weeks Before Blockade
A possible meeting between Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and his USA counterpart Donald Trump will depend on how much progress the two countries make on issues of mutual interest, Mexico's foreign ministry said on Wednesday. Videgaray was scheduled to accompany the Mexican head of state on that trip.
Specific topics discussed at the two meetings included border security, transnational crime, orderly and safe migration, the development of Central America and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the SRE said.
Tensions have been high for months between Nieto and Trump, largely due to Trump's repeated insistence that Mexico will pay for a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border - a prospect that Nieto has repeatedly rejected.
On Monday, Trump reiterated that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was bad for the United States, accusing Mexico of doing enough to stop drugs making its way across the US border.
But the encounter between Mexico's president and Mr. Kushner, a political newcomer whose top-secret security clearance was stripped last month, underscored the profound shift in approach that the Trump administration has taken with Mexico, and with the region more broadly.
