Mexico: ‘Our focus will be on victims affected by deadly earth quake’

MEXICAN government will no longer send emergency aid offered to Texas after Hurricane Harvey, the foreign ministry has said in a statement.

According to statement, instead the country will focus on those affected by a deadly earthquake and Hurricane Katia that struck the eastern state of Veracruz last week, the Mexican Foreign Ministry said Monday.

The Ministry said the decision was taken in light of the changed circumstances in both countries, and the fact that the need for help in Texas had diminished.

Mexico offered to deliver aid to Texas in late August, after the state was struck by Hurricane Harvey and flooding.

But Mexico is now grappling with the aftermath of two natural disasters.

An 8.1-magnitude earthquake struck off Mexico's southern coast last Thursday. The earthquake struck the states of Oaxaca, Chiapas and Tabasco, and killed 95 people, the Foreign Ministry said.
