According to Yedioth Ahronoth, Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Figari contacted Israeli Ambassador to Mexico Yoni Peled and told him of the shift in strategy for all upcoming voting procedures related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The report said that Mexico will change from voting in favor of the Palestinians to abstaining or voting for Israel's interests.
The report comes as Mexico earlier this month sided with Israel in a UNESCO vote. In mid-September, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made his first-ever official visit to Mexico. During the same month, Israel provided humanitarian aid to the North American country following a 7.1-magnitude earthquake there.
