    MEXICO CITY, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations would hold a serious debate on the planned U.S. border wall with Mexico, Thierry Lemaresquier, a top UN official in Mexico, said on Friday.

    The United States plans to build a 1,126-km border wall to close off large parts of its 3,000-km border with Mexico.

    Speaking at the sidelines of a meeting at the Ibero-Americana University in Mexico City, Lemaresquier said "The United Nations must hold a deep and serious debate on migration... which has become a major factor in international relations in the last 30 years, particularly in countries like Mexico," Lemaresquier said.

    U.S. President George W. Bush on Thursday signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006, authorizing the construction of about 1,126 km of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border.
