Mexican, US leaders meet for first time at G20

President Donald Trump meets with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto

"It is a subject that was not touched, because we have a noticeable difference", Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray told Mexico's "In the Morning" radio programme.

Trump insists that the wall is crucial to keeping drugs and criminals out of the USA — although those plans still remain unclear.

Trump recently proposed putting solar panels on the physical barrier, partly to raise money to fund it.

In his speech announcing his candidacy in June 2015, Mr Trump said: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best". According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, prototypes should be built by September. -Mexican border out of concrete and steel.

The strong reaction from Pena Nieto signaled a remarkable souring of relations between Washington and one of its most important global partners just days into the new administration. The White House had said there was no set agenda for the session, although Tillerson said the Syria war would be a key topic. "He didn't. Trump is a bully, but Pena Nieto is a coward". Trump has repeatedly criticized the three-nation trade deal as a hindrance to American workers.

In addition Trump has angered Mexico with attacks on Mexican immigrants as "criminals, drug dealers and rapists" and his insistence on holding tough new trade negotiations with its southern neighbour. In it, Trump said he was pursuing a "total renegotiation" of the pact.

Aside from the disputed border wall, Trump said that the two heads of state made "very good progress" renegotiating NAFTA, a point Nieto confirmed via translator. Let's see how it all turns out. He said the USA was pursuing "a total renegotiation of NAFTA and if we don't get it we will terminate it, that is, end NAFTA forever".

Pena Nieto, whom Trump called his "friend", said the meeting would "help us continue a very strong dialogue" on NAFTA, while his aides emphasized that they had not discussed the wall.
