Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations Patricia Espinosa said Friday her visit's aim was to strengthen ties between Turkey and Mexico.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in Ankara, Espinosa said that the signed agreements would boost economic cooperation.
As Mexico, we support Turkey's representation at international forums, Espinosa said.
We want Turkish citizens to visit Mexico and enjoy the beauties of our country. We are working to ease visa procedures for Turkish citizens, Espinosa said.
As Mexico, we condemn all forms of terror acts and think that the fight against organized crime should be strengthened, Espinosa said.
Turkey and Mexico will take steps so that the international community's fight against terrorist organizations will be strengthened, Espinosa also said.
Asked what he thought about a meeting held at the U.S. Department of State on Turkey, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that this meeting demonstrated how crucial Turkish-U.S. relations were.
We do hold similar meetings on Turkish-U.S. relations at our Ministry. Such meetings are a natural result of our relations, Davutoglu said.
In response to a question on the possibility that direct peace talks between Israel and Palestine may take place in Bulgaria and how such talks would affect Turkey's influence in the region, Davutoglu said that the location of a meeting would not directly have an impact on Turkey's role and influence in the region.
