US President Barack Obama is to visit Mexico
during the first week of May, the Mexican Foreign Ministry said
This is set to be Obama's first visit to the United States' southern neighbour since Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto took office on December 1.
The Foreign Ministry said the visit was agreed on early Wednesday, during a phonecall between the leaders.
"The meeting between presidents will allow them to reaffirm the strategic importance of bilateral relations," the ministry said.
Obama and Pena Nieto are expected to discuss competitiveness, education and innovation, border issues, trade, migration and violence, among other issues.
Obama first visited Mexico in June 2012, when he was in the resort town of Los Cabos for a G20 summit. Felipe Calderon was Mexico's president at the time.
