CFK receives Mexican president-elect

Mexican president elect Enrique Peña Nieto met President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner

The newly-appointed President of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto met with President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, as he arrived to Argentina as part of his tour across Latin America.

"We would like to strengthen the bilateral relation between both countries," Peña Nieto told reporters following the encounter. "We had a fraternal, cordial meeting, and I hope we are able to work closely together in the future," he added.

The Heads of State's meeting lasted over an hour and Fernández de Kirchner showed her counterpart a mural by Mexican artist Héctor Siqueiros, which is in display in the Bicentennary Museum.

In his first major trip since Mexico's electoral tribunal confirmed him as president elect, Peña Nieto was holding talks with leaders in Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Peru and Chile after beginning travels in neighbouring Guatemala one week ago.

Mexico's incoming president arrived in Buenos Aires tonight and currently is holding a meeting with President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, following his stay in Chile where he met with President Sebastián Piñera.

Peña Nieto takes office on December 1, at a time when Mexico is bucking an international economic downturn but still facing a major menace from violent drug gangs, which have killed tens of thousands of people during President Felipe Calderon's term.
