MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto is not scheduled to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump at the Summit of the Americas in Lima later this week, Mexico’s Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said on Monday.

Videgaray said on local radio that he expected there would be further talks on the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) during the summit.

The minister also noted no decision had been taken yet to suspend any aspect of cooperation between Mexico and the United States after the government said it was reviewing joint cooperation following recent tensions between Mexico and Trump.
