Mexico says Trump-Pena Nieto meet unlikely to lead to big deals

Pena Nieto and Trump met in Hamburg Friday after which the President said he"absolutely wants Mexico to pay for the wall
President Donald Trump sat down with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto this morning at the G20 summit in Germany, saying he still wants the country to pay for a proposed border wall.
The two leaders have since spoken by phone, and a series of high-level meetings have eased the tension. "But I think we made very good progress", Trump said.
Journalists packed the meeting room on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit of industrialized and developing nations for a first glimpse of the two leaders together.
The us president has hammered on several occasions that he would build a wall along the 3142 kilometres away from the border that separates the United States from Mexico, to stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking.
"I've said time again; Mexico will not pay for any wall", the Mexican president said in a video statementposted to Twitter and translated by CNN from Spanish in January.
In fact, Mr Videgaray added, Mr Peña Nieto didn't even hear the President's photo-op comment.
June 26, a global survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that Trump's calls for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border was his least popular policy position worldwide, with a median 76 percent of the 37 countries surveyed opposing the proposal.
Asked Friday if he still expects Mexico to fund the wall, Trump replied: "Absolutely".
"We didn't touch on that subject in our conversation, which lasted about half an hour - partly because we have a well-known, significant difference of opinion on that", he said.
Erecting a Mexican-funded wall along the USA southern border to curb illegal immigration has been a priority and faltering promise for the current administration.
The 1994 trade deal is a cornerstone of the Mexican economy, but Trump blames it for shipping American jobs south of the border. Nieto turned his head toward Trump, seemingly in disbelief.
Pena Nieto will also talk about the rights of Mexican migrants in the United States, the ministry said.
