Mexico City (CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is set to meet with Mexico's foreign minister in bilateral talks Monday.

Clinton and Mexican Foreign Minister Patricia Espinosa are scheduled to discuss a range of issues, including the border between the two countries and working together to fight organized crime, the U.S. State Department said.

"The secretary's been very clear that we need to do our part on this side of the border, both in terms of stemming the flow of weapons, stemming the flow of money, and dealing with the demand ... which is a core element of this challenge," State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters Friday. "I'm sure they will have the opportunity to assess where we are and continue to work on our common strategy."

Other topics on the agenda include economic competitiveness and global climate change, the State Department said.

The talks will take place in the central Mexican city of Guanajuato.
