Mexican President Urges Review of Drug Cooperation with the US

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday morning that his government would review the country’s cooperation over drug policy with the United States, and how its agencies operate in the country.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday morning that his government would review the country’s cooperation over drug policy with the United States, and how its agencies operate in the country.

“We have to review all of this: how these arrest warrants are issued, who is intervening, what agreements there are with U.S. agents who operate in Mexico,” President Lopez Obrador told local reporters in Mexico City at a regular news conference.

His comments follow the October 15th arrest of former Mexican army chief Salvador Cienfuegos in Los Angeles on charges of drug trafficking and money laundering on a warrant issued by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration.

US embassy spokeswoman Adrienne Bory said in a statement that the United States “values its close relationship with Mexico on our shared security challenges.”

“We look forward to continuing our deep and productive relationship — and many future successes,” the statement said.
