Build your own wall, Mexico tells Trump
MEXICO’S president hit back at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s claim that if elected, he would make Mexico build a wall along its United States border.
The bombastic billionaire has promised to crack down on illegal immigration and insulted Mexican immigrants by calling them rapists, criminals and drug dealers.
As his party’s presumptive presidential candidate, Mr Trump is now eyeing a clash in the November elections with his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
“There is no way to have Mexico pay [for] the wall. But any decisions inside [the] USA – is a decision of its government,” Mr Pena Nieto told CNN in English on July 10.
The Mexican president earlier had said Mr Trump’s campaign pledge was a non-starter, but he had not previously addressed the issue so specifically.
Mr Pena Nieto said US-Mexican relations were based on coordination, collaboration and cooperation on security issues. – THE United Nations cultural agency met in Istanbul to consider adding more than two dozen new sites to its prestigious global heritage list, and called for a strong global response to the threats posed by extremism.
The meeting of the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO comes less than two weeks after the main airport here was hit by a triple suicide attack that left 47 people dead.
The strike was blamed on Islamic State (IS) jihadists who have already destroyed irreplaceable heritage in Turkey’s neighbours Syria and Iraq.
Director-general of Unesco Irina Bokova said world heritage was under threat in countries riven by unrest from Mali to Yemen.
Ms Bokova said the fact the committee was holding the meeting in Istanbul – a city for centuries controlled by Christian Byzantines and since the Ottoman conquest by Muslims – was a “strong symbol” of support to Turkey. –
