NEW YORK: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who met Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto in New York today, sought his country’s support on the whole issue of UN Security Council reform and India’s permanent membership in a reformed and expanded Security Council.

Talking about the meeting between Prime Minister Modi and the Mexican President, MEA official spokesperson Vikas Swarup said the two leaders discussed ways and means of how the bilateral relationship could be strengthened even further.

“In this context, they agreed that the two Foreign Ministers should meet early to finalise a plan of action for taking the bilateral relationship to a new level. The Prime Minister invited President Nieto to visit India and in turn President Nieto invited the Prime Minister to visit Mexico,” said Swarup.

“There was also a discussion on India’s membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group, MTCR and the other export control regimes where Prime Minister sought the support of President Nieto in expediting this,” he added.

Swarup further said Mexico is an important country in Latin America.

“It is a very fast growing economy. It is also a major oil exporter,” he added.
