Mexico, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Turkey, and Australia have developed a cooperation scheme within the framework called MIKTA. This mechanism created in 2013, is based on a common interest in strengthening multilateralism by supporting worldwide efforts for stability and prosperity, facilitating pragmatic and creative solutions to regional and international challenges and implementing the needed reforms in global governance structures.

MIKTA is a cross-regional partnership, with diversity in terms of culture, socio-economic structure and geography, which members are leaders in its respective regions. It should be mentioned, all member states are G20 economies with similar GDP, that facilitates reciprocal cooperation.

Mexico is convinced of the irreplaceable value of diplomacy, with an outstanding multilateral tradition and a demonstrated capacity to engage in dialogue and build consensus. It is in this spirit that we participate in MIKTA.

As MIKTA countries, we are located in different regions, and we possess wide variety of historical and cultural richness. We also share interests, which motivates us to come closer together and to expand our cooperation ties in all spheres, to face common challenges.
