Senior Mexican and American military and interior officials spoke on Tuesday, Mexico's government said, in a sign that communication remains open between the two countries, despite deep tension over President Donald Trump's proposals.

In a telephone call, Mexican Interior Minister Miguel Angel Osorio Chong and US Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly discussed security issues and an upcoming meeting in Mexico City, according to a statement that gave few details.

A separate Mexican government communique showed Secretary of Defense Salvador Cienfuegos and his US counterpart, James Mattis, spoke about an April meeting of security officials that will include Canada.
