(Reuters) - A letter by U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has satisfied Mexican concerns over the United States’ plan to appoint labor attaches to follow Mexico’s application of its labor laws, a senior Mexican official said on Monday.

Asked whether Lighthizer’s letter had cleared up Mexico’s concerns over the labor attaches, deputy foreign minister Jesus Seade told reporters in Washington: “Absolutely.”
