Mexico’s foreign ministry said on Tuesday that it would quickly seek a high-level meeting with US State Department officials after US President Donald Trump said he would designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist groups.

In a statement, the ministry said it would also seek to address how to reduce the illegal flow of arms and money to organized crime in Mexico from the United States.
