    Mexico's outgoing president has told the visiting US secretary of state that Washington must quickly reunite families that were separated at the US-Mexico border.

    Immigration topped the agenda of a meeting between Mike Pompeo and Enrique Pena Nieto.

    Pompeo later met Mexico's president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who gave the secretary a letter, outlining Mexican initiatives for future bilateral ties, to deliver to US President Donald Trump.
