MEXICO CITY (AFP) – Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said Wednesday that he and US president-elect Donald Trump, whose anti-immigrant rhetoric has angered Mexicans, had agreed to meet to discuss the future of bilateral relations.

Pena Nieto, who rejected Trump’s demand that Mexico pay for a border wall during the campaign, said the pair had a “cordial, friendly and respectful” phone conversation during which he congratulated Trump on his victory.
