MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador says he has talked to U.S. President Donald Trump about plans for development projects in Central America aimed at reducing the need for people to emigrate north.

Lopez Obrador says the two "are going for cooperation on economic development" to give people an alternative to emigration.

Trump tweeted earlier Wednesday that he'd spoken to Lopez Obrador of Mexico." In his words, it was a "Great call, we will work well together!"

Neither said whether they discussed Trump's proposed border wall, an issue that vexed relations with outgoing President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Lopez Obrador wants the U.S. to join in an "alliance for progress" like President John F. Kennedy's Latin America program launched in 1961.
