Obrador said they had a meeting with Slim in which the billionaire agreed that his construction firm "will pay for everything" needed for the reconstruction.

"He will take care of the reconstruction of the entire subway line, making sure that it gets done with all the necessary safety measures at no cost to the Mexican people and without support government for a budget," he said.
