SAN JOSE, March 29 (Xinhua) -- Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said in San Jose on Wednesday that he is working to build a positive relationship with the United States in face of the challenges with its vital trading partner.
He make the pledge at a summit of the Tuxtla Political Dialogue and Consensus Mechanism that gathered leaders from 10 countries of Mesoamerica.
Pena Nieto said the readjustment of ties with the United States is "a stage Mexico is going through," adding that he is optimistic that dialogues with the United States would lead to "positive results" for both nations.
U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada since taking office in January.
He has also tightened immigration policies and vowed to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to fend off illegal immigration.
The Mexican president also thanked his counterparts of Mesoamerican countries for the "displays of solidarity and trust" when Mexico is facing challenges in its relations with the United States.
Mexico will not waver in its ties with Mesoamerican countries during this process, especially on such issues of common interests as immigration and economic cooperation, Pena Nieto said.
The Tuxtla Political Dialogue and Consensus Mechanism gathers Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Belize, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Mexico, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic.
It was created in 1991 to help the Mesoamerican countries foster free trade, regional integration and seek common stance on key issues.
