Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Mexico from the US earlier on Wednesday.
Mexican Foreign Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu was present at the airport to receive Modi. Ruiz Massieu was in New Delhi in March this year and in a meeting with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, both leaders explored the possibility of taking bilateral relations to a higher level.
Amid chants of 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai', Indian community in Mexico City welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Interacting with a boisterous crowd waiting outside the hotel, the Prime Minister also clicked photographs with them.
