Pence also answered questions on the negotiations at the summit of Latin American countries in Peru and said he is very hopeful that the United States, Mexico and Canada were close to a deal on a renegotiated NAFTA trade pact.

"We agreed to keep up work towards reaching a deal and to summon our special negotiating teams to accelerate their efforts", Pena Nieto told reporters after meeting Pence.

Pence echoed Trump in his remarks on Saturday, saying that the USA was prepared to carry out "sustained" action against Syria's chemical weapons program, unless the government of President Bashar Assad ceased its use of chemical munitions.

Saturday's meeting comes amid tensions between President Donald Trump and Mexico over immigration and the president's calls for a border wall. Both Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto have argued against scrapping the $1.2 trillion deal.
