Washington, January 27. Mexican President Enrique peña Nieto on Friday discussed with the President of the United States Donald Trump's construction of a wall on the border between the two States. A telephone conversation between politicians lasted about an hour.
This information was confirmed by representatives of both presidential administrations, the Associated Press reports.
Note that Nieto had to come to Washington to meet with Trump next week, but on the eve of the Mexican leader canceled his visit. The reason for this was the dispute over the construction of the wall, which should prevent the penetration in the USA of illegal immigrants and drugs.
Trump demands that the Mexican government participated in the financing of the project, however, Nieto refuses to accept these conditions..
