Vice President Mike Pence says the topic of funding President Donald Trump's long-promised border wall did not come up in his meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto at an international summit in Peru.

President Donald Trump promised to build a wall along the southern border and insisted Mexico would pay for it. Mexico has refused.

Pence met with Pena Nieto on Saturday. He acknowledged that the two have a difference of and said that some issues were "set aside, for a later date."

He says they discussed the fact that both countries have strong presidents with strong personalities who are bound to have strong differences at times.

But he says their meeting focused on issues the countries can work together on, including immigration, the North American Free Trade Agreement and combating drugs.
