Foreign Relations Minister Marcelo Ebrard presided over a meeting with the ambassador and 52 consuls in the United States to launch Mexico’s “information and defense campaign” in the face of what he considers “Attacks” by members of the Republican Party.
Ebrard stressed at the meeting in Washington that Mexico would not “allow” the United States to “run over” its government with accusations over the fentanyl crisis.
“With such a loss of human life, how dare these gentlemen question our commitment, or even worse, ask for intervention in our country?”
Mexico’s Foreign Ministry specifically referred to the attacks by “former Republican Party deputies and officials”, calling them “unacceptable”.
Tensions between the United States and Mexico escalated following the kidnapping in broad daylight of four Americans, two of whom were killed, who had traveled to Tamaulipas, one of the six Mexican states that Washington requires its citizens not to travel to.
The State Department recommends avoiding five other Mexican states: Colima, Guerrero, Michoacan, Sinaloa, and Zacatecas.
The Republican opposition called for Mexican cartels to be declared terrorists and proposed military intervention in Mexican territory, which the White House ruled out but angered Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who called the Republicans “cowards”. and “interferers”. EFE
