Mexico's foreign policy towards the Middle East can be characterized in general terms as exhibiting a lack of interest towards the region. Here it is argued that this state of affairs has persisted not only because of the weight of its relationship to the United States, but also because the foreign policy displayed towards the region lacks a clearly delineated or permanent strategy that exhibits more conjectural interests than long-term goals. The analysis comprehends the background of Mexico's rapprochement to Middle Eastern countries in order to notice the shifts experienced in the last two administrations, which can tell if the challenges imposed at the domestic and international level can reshape Mexico relationship towards this region.
