MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that he would discuss how Mexico and Guatemala could work together to address the challenge posed by migration, when he met Guatemalan President-elect Alejandro Giammattei later on Friday.

“Obviously the most important thing just now is to agree to work together to tackle the migration phenomenon,” Lopez Obrador told a news conference in the Mexican city of Merida, where he is due to meet Giammattei, who takes office in January.
