MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s Deputy Foreign Minister Jesus Seade met with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and U.S. Chamber of Commerce head Tom Donohue over a tariff and immigration dispute, a member of Seade’s staff said on Tuesday.

Mexican and U.S. officials are talks aimed at averting a major trade clash after U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to impose punitive tariffs on all Mexican goods in an intensifying dispute over migration.
