The United States and Mexico promised on Friday to address the root causes of soaring migration and to boost lucrative work together on semiconductors as they opened a pair of top-level meetings.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with top trade officials of the two countries and next week will travel to Mexico, where the top US diplomat will hold security talks and meet Mexico President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, according to US officials. The meetings come after a spike in the number of people mostly from Central America and Venezuela who are seeking to cross Mexico into the United States.
