MEXICO CITY — U.S. President Barack Obama will head to Mexico in May, officials said.
Obama accepted Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's invitation to visit Wednesday morning, Mexico's foreign ministry said in a statement.
Obama will travel to Mexico during the first week in May to discuss a variety of issues with Pena Nieto, the statement said.
"The agenda between both countries is broad and directly affects both societies," the statement said. "During the visit, competitiveness, education and innovation will be addressed, as well as border infrastructure, trade, immigration and citizen security, among other issues of shared interest."
Pena Nieto met with Obama at the White House in November, just a few days before taking office in Mexico.
