Mexican visit

In 1980 Prime Minister Robert Muldoon made an official visit to Mexico, accompanied by a high-level trade mission comprising public- and private-sector representatives. Here, the delegation and their Mexican hosts stand before the Monumento de los Niños Héroes, which commemorates six teenage boys who died defending Mexico City during the Mexican–American War of 1846–48.
