MEXICO 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.
Mr. Trump is scheduled to take office on Friday.
The meeting comes at a difficult time in bilateral relations, after Mr. Trump’s repeated pledge to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement and to deport illegal migrants from the U.S. He also said he plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and have Mexico pay for it.
