Massieu: U.S.-Mexico Relationship Goes Beyond Governments

Mexico’s foreign minister, Claudia Ruiz Massieu, dismissed Republican U.S. presidential nominee Donald Trump’s calls for the nation to pay for a border wall, calling instead for greater integration between the nations.

In interviews with Bloomberg Radio and Bloomberg TV in New York on Thursday, Ruiz cited the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership as an opportunity to deepen the trade relationship created by the North American Free Trade Agreement, which took effect in 1994.
