Mexican President, Pena Nieto has condemned the United States President Donald Trump’s order that a wall should be built along the US-Mexico border.

President Trump has always said it that a wall will be built along the US/Mexican border to prevent illegal immigrants from gaining free access into the US. However his Mexican counterpart President Pena Nieto says that his country will not be paying for it;

“I regret and condemn the decision of the United States to continue construction of a wall that, for years, has divided us instead of uniting us,” President Pena Nieto said in a brief televised message on Wednesday.

“Mexico does not believe in walls. I have said it time and again: Mexico will not pay for any wall,” he said, referring to Trump’s vow to make his southern neighbour pay for the barrier.

“Mexico gives and demands respect as the completely sovereign nation that we are,” Pena Nieto, who is due to meet with Trump at the White House next week, said.
