    Enrique Pena Nieto expressed confidence that Mexico and the United States would continue strengthening their ties of cooperation and mutual respect.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto congratulated on Wednesday the United States on its electoral process, expressing readiness to work with US President-elect Donald Trump to improve bilateral relations.

    "I congratulate the United States on its electoral process and reiterate to Donald Trump the readiness to work together in favor of bilateral relations. Mexico and the United States are friends, partners and allies who should continue cooperating for competitiveness and development of North America," Pena Nieto said on Twitter.

    He expressed his confidence that the two countries would continue strengthening their ties of cooperation and mutual respect.

    Republican Party’s Trump won elections on November 8. In announcing his presidential bid on June 16, Trump said illegal immigrants from Mexico bring mostly drugs and crime to the United States, and characterized Mexican immigrants as rapists. He has repeatedly vowed for building of a wall between Mexico and the United States, saying the former would pay for the construction.
