Perez Roque congratulated the Mexican government and people on his arrival, because Mexico had been elected as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the 2009-2010 period.
"We come to rebuild links that should have never been damaged," he told the Mexican press on his arrival.
The Cuban Foreign Minister's program includes delivery of an invitation to Mexican President Felipe Calderon from his Cuban peer Raul Castro to visit the Caribbean island soon.
Perez Roque's visit to this country also reciprocates the visait to the Island by Mexican Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa in March.
During his stay in this city, the Cuban diplomat will hold talks with parliamentary and political party leaders.
He will also meet members of the Mexican Movement of Solidarity with Cuba and representatives of Cuban residents in Mexico.
Trade, cultural and educational affairs are also part of the agenda that both Foreign Ministers, Perez and Espinosa, will assess together, although the migratory topic will be the core of the exchange.
