Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Saturday said relations with the United States should "generate mutual respect and build confidence", a day after US President Donald Trump renewed his commitment to building a wall on the border between the two neighbors. The bilateral meeting marked the first time that the two leaders had met personally since August 2016. Both leaders said the meeting was productive, but neither offered specific details about the discussions.
On Friday, Trump said they are making "very good progress" on "negotiating NAFTA and some other things with Mexico".
Peña Nieto agreed, saying the meeting would "continue a flowing dialogue" between the two countries.
Trump said in 2015 when he announced his presidential campaign: "I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall".
Trump also praised President Nieto as his "friend", following the Mexican president canceling what was one of the administration's first White House guest visits.
Estimates say the border barrier will cost billions of dollars.
New Overwatch Blog Post From Blizzard Teases Doomfist
When Overwatch introduced its 24th hero, the robot Orisa, they first teased it with a cryptic article posted on February 21. However, it remains unclear whether the new Doomfist is a hero or a villain until Blizzard officially reveals the character.
Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Videgaray said "The issue of the wall was not discussed, was not part of the conversation".
Trump's apparent inability to talk to Pena Nieto without offending Mexico, and the Mexican president's apparent unwillingness to push back, have infuriated many Mexicans.
In fact, Mr Videgaray added, Mr Peña Nieto didn't even hear the President's photo-op comment.
Trump, who met with Pena Nieto during the campaign a year ago, insists that even if US taxpayers have to cover the costs upfront, Mexico will eventually be forced to reimburse the U.S.in some way.
US President Donald Trump reiterated on Friday his desire to see Mexico finance the construction of its border wall project, before meeting with his Mexican counterpart on the sidelines of the G2O. "He didn't. Trump is a bully, but Pena Nieto is a coward".
