The Mexican government connects with the United States to offer assistance to the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
Foreign Affairs Minister Luis Videgaray spoke with Texas governor Greg Abbott on Sunday evening to assist “because neighbors must trust in tough times,” Dallas Morning News said.
“As we have done in the past, Mexico remains with Texas in this difficult time,” said Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, Mexico’s delegate to Austin.
“The Government of Mexico takes this opportunity to express its full solidarity with the people and the United States government for the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas,” the Mexican Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Mexico offered the same aid in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans.
In the midst of reports, President Trump continued Sunday on Twitter, demanding that they pay for their border wall project and accuse the country of being “extremely problematic” in NAFTA renegotiations.
Mexican officials reacted, saying that the nation would not pay for the divisor as “a rule of national power and respect.” Mexico also stated that it would not renegotiate an exchange negotiation through online networks.
