Jerusalem: Israel's president has apologised to Mexico for a tweet by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that appeared to endorse US President Donald Trump's proposed border wall.
A statement from President Reuven Rivlin's office on Wednesday says he told Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto in a phone call that there has been a misunderstanding.
It says Pena Nieto said the tweet hurt Israel-Mexico ties.
Netanyahu tweeted on Saturday that Israel's barrier along its border with Egypt had stemmed a swell of African migrants.
