Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto announced that he will not attend the working meeting scheduled for next Tuesday Jan. 31 with his American counterpart, Donald Trump.
“This morning we informed the White House that I will not attend the scheduled work meeting for next Tuesday with @POTUS,” he said in his Twitter account @EPN.
In a second tweet he wrote that “Mexico reiterates its willingness to work with the United States to reach agreements in favor of both nations.”
Trump later presented the scrapped plan as a mutual agreement. Addressing Republican members of Congress at a meeting in Philadelphia, he said he and Pena Nieto had agreed to cancel the meeting, adding it would be fruitless if Mexico did not treat the United States “fairly”.
“I’ve said many times that the American people will not pay for the wall,” Trump told the gathering. “Unless Mexico is going to treat the United States fairly, with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless and I want to go a different route.”
