Mexico offers to negotiate over US tiol Guard deployment

Mexico City, April 6: Mexican President Enrique Pe Nieto has said that he was willing to negotiate on his American counterpart Dold Trump’s decision to deploy the tiol Guard on the US-Mexico border. Nieto’s remark on Thursday was in response to a proclamation signed on Wednesday by Trump that authorises the deployment of the tiol Guard to the 3,200-km-long border in order to stop the flow of drugs and crimils as well as control illegal immigration, reports Xinhua news agency. The US said the tiol Guard will act only in a support role. But the Mexican Government sees the move as a militarisation of the border. (IANS)
