Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to speak in the United States on Tuesday

Mexican President Vicente Fox has scheduled a speech on Tuesday in New York to promote the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

President Peña said in a statement Wednesday that he had decided to speak with U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday to discuss the agreement.

Mexico is the largest recipient of free trade agreements and has become a major U.N. supporter for the pact.

The agreement, which was first negotiated by former President Vicenzo Perez in 1994, is the biggest free trade deal signed by a sitting president in decades.

Trump has repeatedly criticized the pact and vowed to pull out of it.

Fox has repeatedly praised the deal, saying it would provide Mexico “great economic opportunity” and “great job creation” for its citizens.
