Very good news:
Thank you President of Mexico @EPN and Secretary of Foreign Affairs Videgaray for refusing to go along with one sided anti-Israel resolutions at the UN. Deeply value your friendship. 🇮🇱🇲🇽 pic.twitter.com/1l2629xsTi

Mexico says it will henceforth vote with Israel in international bodies. Netanyahu thanks Mexican leadership for refusing to go along with ‘one-sided’ resolutions against Jewish state
Mexico reportedly has announced that it will change its voting strategy at the UN and other international bodies by putting a stop to votes in favor of Palestinian resolutions, reported the UnitedWithIsrael website last Wednesday.
Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Figari contacted Israeli Ambassador to Mexico Yoni Pelad and told him of the shift in strategy for upcoming voting related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israel’s Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported.
The declaration was made two months after Netanyahu visited Mexico during a trip to Latin America that also included Argentina and Colombia.
Israel has sent Mexico substantial humanitarian aid at times of need, most recently after the September earthquake. I’m glad to see Mexico corresponding.
