MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto says he will not attend a planned Jan. 31 meeting with President Donald J. Trump, hours after Trump tweeted the meeting should be canceled if Mexico won't pay for a border wall.

Pena Nieto's message on Twitter ended days of uncertainty about what he would do.

Despite the cancellation, the Mexican leader tweeted that "Mexico reaffirms its willingness to work with the United States to reach agreements that benefit both nations."
