MEXICOCITY (Reuters) – Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Friday that Mexico has followed through on its commitment to reduce migration from Central America, as agreed to in a deal with the United States.

Speaking to reporters in El Salvador, Ebrard said Mexico had also fulfilled its pledge to support economic development in the region. In June, Mexico struck a migration deal with the United States to avert punitive trade tariffs.
