The U.N. Security Council voted on Monday to approve President Donald Trump’s request for a security boost for Mexico.
The vote comes amid heightened tensions between the U.B.C. and the U., which have grown as the two countries’ leaders spar over Trump’s plan to build a border wall along the border with the U .
S, or border with Mexico.
The vote comes as Mexico and the United States continue to work toward a bilateral summit on July 6 in the Mexican capital.
U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is visiting Mexico City, also plans to meet with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Tuesday.
Trump has promised a “massive wall” along the 2,200-mile (3,200 kilometers) frontier.
He says it will be built by his administration and Mexico would foot the bill.
In the past week, the two sides have engaged in heated exchanges over Trump administration policies in the South and Central American countries, with Mexico demanding a halt to deportations and U.L.P. demanding a change in how it conducts negotiations with drug traffickers.
The border dispute is expected to dominate the summit, which is being attended by Johnson, Pena, Mexican President Benigno Aquino, and U-S.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
Last week, Johnson called on the U-L.
Ps. to agree to halt deportations.
U.S.-based Human Rights Watch accused the U.-L.LP. of engaging in extrajudicial killings and summary executions, and of committing human rights violations.
“There is a strong risk that if Mexico continues to ignore the U.”s demands, U.
Aquino could face retaliatory measures, the U..
S. embassy said in a statement on Monday.
Mexico’s foreign minister, Jose Manuel Rodriguez, has threatened to retaliate against the U.’s actions, which he called “unacceptable.”
Trump’s plan would increase security and help U.O.s respond to the increased drug trafficking in the border area, said the UB.
Cs. top official, Eduardo Sanchez-Morales.
We will respond with a powerful response, Sanchez-Mora, Mexico’s deputy foreign minister and an expert on Mexico’s border, told the AP.
On the U, he said the two leaders will work to address issues including drug trafficking, human rights abuses and political prisoners.
A spokesman for Pena said in an email to The Associated Press on Monday that the two had not agreed on a new border plan.
