On July 30, the Foreign Minister of Mexico, José Antonio Meade Kuribreña, paid an official to Turkey. During the visit, Mr. Meade met with his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu. The two officials addressed bilateral, regional and international issues pertaining to bilateral relations, as well as preparations for the visit of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto to Turkey scheduled for September 2-4.
Considering Mexico as an "important partner" for Turkey's strategy towards Latin America, Mr. Davutoglu stressed the current bilateral trade volume between Mexico and Turkey – the 12th and the 16th biggest economies of the world – "does not reflect the desired level."
Also, President Nieto's visit will witness the signing of a number of agreements, mostly aimed at increasing trade flows and better coordinating "fruitful cooperation" within the United Nations (UN), the OECD and the G20. "It is foreseen that a joint declaration entitled Strategic Partnership in the 21th Century between Turkey and Mexico will be adopted, Foreign Minister Davutoglu added.
On June 29, Turkey became an observer to the Pacific Alliance established by Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Chile in June 2012. This status is in line with Turkey's policy of opening up to Latin America and the Caribbean, a Foreign Ministry official communiqué read, as "Turkey aims to enhance its cooperation with the countries of the region in multilateral platforms and institutionalize its relations with regional organizations."
