A summit between US President Donald Trump and his Mexican counterpart Enrique Pena Nieto next week is still on "for now", Mexico's foreign minister said on Wednesday, despite pressure at home to scrap it over objections to a border wall.

Earlier in the day Trump signed new executive orders, including one authorizing a wall on the U.S. southern border, just as a Mexican delegation led by Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray arrived at the White House for talks.The timing caused outrage in Mexico, with prominent politicians and many on social media seeing at as a deliberate snub to the government's efforts to engage with Trump, who has for months used Mexico as a political punching bag.
