Mexico’s foreign minister Luis Videgaray said further meetings with Trump administration officials in coming days are not ruled out, according to a report Monday.

He said there is no tentative date yet for a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. But, the minister said, if the peso is a gauge of relations with the U.S., last week was a good week.

The Mexican peso briefly rose about 1 percent against the U.S. dollar Monday morning after netting a gain of more than 3 percent in volatile trade last week.

Videgaray said the phone call between the two presidents helped calm tensions with the U.S., but differences remain. The minister said remittances have not been a point of discussion so far with the Trump team, while talk of making organized crime pay for a wall is a positive sign.

The foreign minister also said Mexico will keep its immigration policy the same and is not closing its doors to anyone.
