Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador defended the recent agreement with Washington to stop the flow of refugees to the United States.

Obrador said in a speech to a crowd of his compatriots in Tijuana, on the northern border of Mexico, that the agreement would protect migrants’ rights and maintain friendly relations with the United States.

“Mexico was preparing, hesitantly, to impose retaliatory customs tariffs against Washington if negotiations between the parties failed to reach an agreement on stopping the flow of immigrants to the United States,” Voice of America quoted Obrador as saying.

The US-Mexican agreement, which was announced on Friday after three days of negotiations between the two sides in Washington, has prevented the implementation of US President Donald Trump’s threat to impose 5 per cent tariffs on Mexican imports to the United States.

Mexico has deployed several thousand National Guard troops on its border with Guatemala to stop the flow of refugees to the United States.
