Foreign Relations Secretary (SRE) Luis Videgaray, who will soon also be attending the G20 Foreign Secretaries’ Meeting in Bonn, Germany, attended the Ninth Meeting of MIKTA Foreign Secretaries.

Indonesian Foreign Affairs Secretary Retno Marsudi, Korea’s Yun Byung-se, Turkey’s Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu and Australia’s Gary Quinlan were all in attendance.

Videgaray said that the foreign ministers discussed their views on international challenges and opportunities and condemned North Korea’s nuclear tests. They also expressed their support for multilateral actions within the United Nations (UN) and G20, as well as their hopes to strengthen free trade at the global level.

The countries that make up MIKTA represent 8 percent of the global GDP and a population of more than 530 million people.

Mexico initiated the collaborative meetings in 2013, seeking to strengthen bilateral relations among its members, foster cooperation and facilitate efforts to promote global issues of common interest.

In 2017 Turkey will coordinate MIKTA activities. During the meeting, Turkey’s foreign minister explained the priorities that will guide the group’s work this year, including economic and trade cooperation, international migration, sustainable development and the fight against terrorism.
