The Mexican Embassy in the Turkish capital hosted a reception on Thursday to commemorate the country's 212th Independence Day.

"Mexico is pleased to celebrate its National Day with its friend and strategic partner Türkiye. We will continue working to strengthen this important relation in the present and for the future," Ambassador Jose Luis Martinez said in a speech at the event in Ankara.

Martinez said Mexico and Türkiye enjoy "excellent" relations in all areas.


The Friendship Agreement, which established diplomatic relations between Türkiye and Mexico, was signed in 1927.

"We are important countries in the international system, with big economies, dynamic populations, geopolitical importance, strategic location and leaders in our regions," he added.

The ambassador hailed Türkiye's mediation role in the Russia-Ukraine war, saying: "Thanks to the mediation of Türkiye and the UN, an important part of the world will overcome the food crisis.

Türkiye, the UN, Russia, and Ukraine signed an agreement in Istanbul on July 22 to resume grain exports from three Ukrainian Black Sea ports, which were paused after the Russia-Ukraine war began in February.

The embassy also inaugurated an exhibition, Diego & Frida: Life chronicles, which is a collection of photographs of artists who were friends and colleagues of the couple, depicting moments in the lives of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
