Prime Minister Abbott meets with Mexican President

On October 7, as part of the 21st Leaders’ Meeting at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum (APEC) 2013, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto attended bilateral meetings with Prime Minister of Australia Tony Abbott.

During his meeting with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, President Peña Nieto stressed his government’ interest in intensifying bilateral relations with Australia and establishing a closer political dialogue based on mutual trust to strengthen the cooperation agenda.

The Mexican president highlighted the priority placed on collaboration and coordination at international forums, which is essential for advancing the creation of consensus on international issues of mutual interest. In this, he expressed his commitment to continuing to encourage dialogue at these forums, as well as collaboration within the framework of the Group of Twenty (G20), a mechanism Australia will chair next year.

The Mexican president expressed his interest in strengthening relations with the government of Australia, which, like his own, began recently, since both countries are part of the group of emerging nations, together with Indonesia, Korea and Turkey.

Prime Minister Abbott and President Peña Nieto, also mentioned the importance placed on the work of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum (APEC) and the progress in the negotiations of the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (TPP), within which they agreed to continue maintaining close collaboration on various topics of mutual interest to both nations, and the development of the work at the Economic Cooperation Forum 2013.
