WASHINGTON: The US and Guatemala have sealed a migration deal, days after US President Donald Trump threatened the Central American country with tariffs.

According to the deal, migrants from Honduras and El Salvador who pass through Guatemala would be required to stop and seek asylum there first.

Migrants who failed to do so would then be ineligible for asylum in the US.

Trump said that in exchange Guatemalan farm workers would get easier access to work on US farms.

The Guatemalan government says the agreement will last for two years, and will be reviewed every three months.
