Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and a senior White House advisor, traveled to Mexico on Wednesday for talks with top Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto.

The Mexican media reported that Kushner was whisked to a meeting in Mexico City with Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray, who has cultivated a close relationship with the Trump confidant.

Kushner later met with Peña Nieto. In a statement issued later, the Mexican government said that representatives of the two countries "agreed to work for agreements beneficial to both nations."

Whether the two presidents will hold a meeting, it said, "will depend on the level of progress achieved" on a range of bilateral issues, including trade, "security, immigration and economic cooperation."

Here in Mexico, Kushner's visit was widely seen as a move to soothe rocky U.S.-Mexico relations.
