HC Deb 26 June 1985 vol 81 c407W
32. Mr. Allen McKay

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on his recent discussions with the President of Mexico.

Sir Geoffrey Howe

The President of Mexico paid a most successful state visit to Britain from 11–14 June, during which my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister had talks with him at 10 Downing street, and I had a separate meeting with the Foreign Minister. In these meetings we were able to discuss a wide range of economic and international matters of interest to both Governments. The President's visit marked a further strengthening of our excellent relations with this important Latin American country.
