MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said on Monday dialogue with officials from the Trump administration is continuing and further bilateral meetings could take place in the coming days.

"I don't rule out that there will be meetings in the next few days with officials from the administration," Videgaray said in an interview with Mexican television.

Relations between the two nations hit a low point last week when U.S. President Donald Trump said his Mexican counterpart Enrique Pena Nieto should call off a planned meeting if he was not ready to pay for the American's planned border wall.

Pena Nieto quickly cancelled the trip, but the two leaders later talked by telephone and agreed between themselves not to discuss the thorny issue of payment of the wall for the time being, according to the Mexican government.
