Washington DC, June 8: United States President Donald Trump has announced on Friday his administration has reached an agreement with the Mexican government on immigration and tariffs imposed on the Central American nation by the US on Monday, have been “indefinitely suspended”, days after struggling to pave a common negotiation between two sides.

In a tweet, Trump wrote, “I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico. The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended. Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to…”

Trump also said Mexico agreed to impose “strong measures” to tackle illegal immigration, and that the details if the agreement would get disclosed shortly by the US state department, according to ANI news reports.

The US president continued tweeting, “…stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border … Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department. Thank you!.”

US authorities have on last Thursday threatened to impose fresh tariffs on its neighbour Mexico if the nation does not step up its enforcement move and take steps to halt the illegal immigration.

The White House statement stated Trump would be carrying out his threats on Mexico under the authorities from the International  Emergency Economic Powers Act and that he would lift tariffs only if the “illegal migration crisis is alleviated through effective actions taken by Mexico”.

Earlier, the US president has cautioned if Mexico didn’t adhere to his demand then the US tariffs would rise up to 10 percent of Mexico good imports by July, up to 15 percent by August, 20 percent by September and would reach 25 percent by October.
