Idelfonso-GuajardoMEXICO CITY—Top Mexican officials will meet with senior members of Donald Trump’s administration next week in Washington, D.C., to discuss bilateral security, migration and economic issues such as the Nafta free trade pact, the Mexican government said Thursday.

Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray and Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo are expected to meet Jan. 25-26 with several high-ranking White House officials, including chief of staff Reince Priebus, Mr. Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, and national security adviser Michael Flynn, the Mexican government said in a statement.
