Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray stated that Mexico will not budge “an inch” in its position of defending Mexicans in the United States and nor will it pay for Trump’s wall.During the G20 Meeting of Foreign Ministers in Bonn, Germany and after meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Videgaray said both countries have common interests of building a respectful and positive relation, despite several public and notorious differences.Tillerson and Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly will visit Mexico in February to go over the broad and complex work agenda on security and migration. Videgaray claimed that while it is highly unlikely that both parties will reach any agreements, the meeting will set common grounds for bilateral dialogue.Videgaray also said that the notion of Mexico financing the border wall is “unacceptable” since it is an “unfriendly gesture between neighbor countries.” He also acknowledged the United States' right to defend its borders even if the building of the wall will not solve migratory issues.
