Mexican President Felipe Calderon and President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto discussed foreign policy during their latest meeting, focusing on progress in working with the United States, the Office of the President said.

Calderon and Peña Nieto had "a detailed discussion of the current state of the bilateral agenda with the United States," the Office of the President said in a statement.

Tuesday's meeting lasted several hours and Calderon told Mexico's next president about the progress made in consolidating the principle of shared responsibility with the U.S. government, as well as how to achieve and maintain confidence, mutual respect and a shared vision in key areas.

The two men reviewed areas that will require special attention from the incoming Peña Nieto administration, which takes office on Dec. 1.

This was the fifth meeting between Calderon and Peña Nieto since the TEPJF electoral court certified the results of Mexico's July 1 presidential election. EFE
