The Dallas Morning News reports:
The Mexican government expressed its solidarity Sunday with the United States following the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey and offered assistance to Texas. Mexico offered to help Texas deal with the disaster, “as good neighbors should always do in trying times.”
On Sunday evening, Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray [photo] and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott spoke by telephone. Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, the Mexican consul general in Austin, said he has been in constant communication with the governor’s office to determine how Mexico can best help.
“As we have done in the past, Mexico stands with Texas in this difficult moment,” Gonzalez said. Twelve years ago, following Hurricane Katrina, Mexico sent troops and a vessel filled with food, medicine and water to aid victims in New Orleans.
