MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico says its top diplomat will meet with U.S. officials this week in Washington to discuss bilateral relations, which have been tense under the administration of President Donald Trump.

A statement from the Foreign Relations Department says Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray will be in the U.S. capital Tuesday through Thursday. His planned meetings include U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

Tuesday's statement said Videgaray will also meet with both Republican and Democratic senators, and attend a session of the Organization of American States.

Mexico has objected to Trump's pledges to step up deportations, build a border wall and renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.
