Mexico, U.S. discuss $10 bln for regional development - Lopez Obrador

MEXICO CITY, March 20 (Reuters) - The Mexican government is seeking a bilateral deal with the United States that includes a $10 billion development plan for Mexico and Central America aimed at addressing immigration, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Wednesday.

Lopez Obrador said the potential agreement, which would focus on generating employment so that more would-be migrants could find work at home, was discussed during a Tuesday night meeting with Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser.
