    Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray did not rule out the possibility to apply to the United Nations following US President Donald Trump’s decision to build a wall on the border with Mexico.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Videgaray noted that there have been no actions so far to apply to the organization concerning the construction of the wall.

    "We should take measures which would be effective at the moment when the events take place," the official told Televisa broadcaster, answering to a question about an appeal to the UN.

    During the 2016 election campaign, Trump said he would construct the wall with Mexico to prevent undocumented immigrants from entering the United States. On January 25, Trump issued an executive order to begin the construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border
