Mexico has agreed to take unprecedented steps to help stem the flow of migrants to

America in order to avoid trade tariffs threatened by US President, Donald Trump.

 

Mr Trump revealed that a deal had been reached to suspend the tariffs indefinitely in a series of tweets.

 

The deal, which was also confirmed in a tweet by Mexico’s Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard, comes at the end of three days of negotiations, which saw Washington demand a crackdown on Central

American migrants.

 

It ould be recalled that President Trump had earlier threatened to implement import duties of 5%, rising every month, unless Mexico acted to curb migration.

 

The tariffs were initially due to come into effect next Monday.
