13 September, 2017, 00:46
The aid Mexico promised the U.S.to help with victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas will now be redirected back to Mexico after the country was hit by a magnitude 8.1 natural disaster that killed 95 people and a hurricane of its own.
Once the news about Harvey was known, the Mexican government offered Texas and the USA government help and collaboration that different Mexican government agencies could provide to address the hurricane impact.
Because of the quake and Hurricane Katia that hit Mexico a day later, the foreign ministry said Monday it could no longer send supplies and personnel to the USA state of Texas that is dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey that struck late last month. After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the country sent a convoy of soldiers, food and medical workers, along with water-treatment facilities and a kitchen to feed 7,000 people a day.
Despite Trump's provocation, Mexico still affirmed that it would aid Harvey victims.
But now, Mexico says it's withdrawing its offer of aid.

The Mexican government told the Texas and the United States federal government that it would not be able to provide the aid originally offered in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
Mexican government officials had initially announced their offer in a statement responding to President Donald Trump's tweets bashing Mexico for violence and the trade deal between the countries. It was the most powerful to hit the country in a century and was felt as far as Mexico City and Guatemala City by an estimated 50 million people. "Mexico will be aware of the development of this phenomenon in the following days, and hopes that soon the state of Florida as well as the state of Texas and the state of Louisiana will recover from the damages caused by the hurricanes that have impacted them", the statement said.
Though the United States and Mexico have historically been close allies, relations have been strained since Trump took office. With the country of Mexico now dealing with its own natural disasters, their government has rescinded offers to help in Texas.
The letter also noted that it was on August 27 that Mexican officials offered specific assistance to Texas in a phone call with Abbott, followed up by an offer of assistance to the U.S. State Department on August 28. "He emphasised to Foreign Secretary Videgaray that the U.S. government stands ready to assist our neighbours in Mexico during this hard time".
