"To address root causes of migration in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, the United States joined Mexico in a new strategic partnership to share information and strategies and co-manage new programs to foster economic opportunity through agricultural development and youth empowerment," Sanders said in a press release.
The United States has also pledged to provide $130 million over the next three years to support Mexican workers' protections.
The White House said in a separate press release that the United States and Mexico also vowed to hold high-level talks to discuss trade and security matters of mutual interest. The two countries agreed to schedule a high-level meeting in September to discuss expanding bilateral trade cooperation and collaboration, including on supply chain resiliency.
Moreover, the release said the United States will aim to create $250 million in new investment and sales for the local economy in southern Mexico.
These commitments are part of a memorandum of understanding signed between the two countries earlier on Tuesday during Harris' trip to Mexico City to attend a bilateral meeting with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
