Mexico will stop voting in favor of the Palestinians at United Nations institutions, the Hebrew newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth has reported.
According to the report, Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray Caso has informed Israeli Ambassador to Mexico Yoni Peled of the change.
On all votes regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Mexico will either abstain or back the Jewish state’s position, the report said.
The shift was manifested earlier this month by Mexico’s first-ever support for Israel in a UNESCO vote.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Mexico in mid-September. And later that month, the Israeli military sent an aid mission to Mexico to help in the search-and-rescue efforts following the deadly 7.1-magnitude earthquake that rocked the central part of the country.
