Mexico wants to strengthen and consolidate bilateral relations with India through their parliaments, President of the Mexican Senate Manlio Fabio Beltrones said on Tuesday.

During an official visit by President of India's lower house of Parliament (Lok Sabha), Meira Kumar, Beltrones said India has a great field of opportunities for such development.

Mexico is geographically near the United States and Canada and its status as member of the North American Free Trade Agreement makes it an important partner for foreign investment, Beltrones said.

He said the brotherhood relations with India have allowed for a consolidation of the democratic institutions between both countries and one of Mexico's main goals is to achieve the interrelation "with our friend countries through its foreign policy principles," he said.

Kumar said she believes her visit to Mexico will help promote cooperation between both countries.

Stressing Mexico is important for India, Kumar said she hopes the two countries will be able to continue to strengthen and improve bilateral ties.

Over the last 60 years, the friendship between the people of both countries has grown and the cooperation is the path toward relations "at a higher level," she added.
