In light of recent political dramas surrounding Mexico and the United States, Mexico and Turkey have agreed to speed up negotiations to sign a bilateral trade agreement, Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said on Friday.
“A point of interest for both countries is to continue dialogue to build a free trade agreement between Turkey and Mexico,” Videgaray said.
“We’ve agreed to an accelerated push to try and finalize this deal,” said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.
Videgaray, who is leading talks about trade, immigration, and security with the United States, is eager to see more Turkish companies in Mexico, particularly in construction and agriculture.
Cavusoglu concurred, revealing that they were also looking into the possibility of direct flights between the two countries.
