Mexico's FM Marcelo Ebrard to Meet Mike Pompeo in Washington

Mexico City - Mexico''s Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard, has traveled on Thursday to the United States where he will meet with his counterpart, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Shortly before his departure, Ebrard told the press that he would make Pompeo aware of the importance of boosting investment in Central America to curb the migratory flow from that region to the United States to which President Donald Trump is so opposed.

Regarding the increasing migratory crisis that is overwhelming both Mexico and the United States, the Foreign Minister explained his idea, perhaps different from others, that if investment does not flow substantially in southern Mexico and especially in the three Central American countries (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador), the migratory problem will not be resolved, rather it will increase over time.

However, although Trump had initially declared in favour of contributing to the fund for development of those three nations, he is currently insisting on the construction of the border wall as the main option and reiterated that the goal is to repair the existing barriers and bring them higher up.

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Wednesday responded to Trump's statements that he does not want confrontations with the United States. He assured that two are needed for a dispute and the Mexican government is not interested in confronting its neighbor.

'I heard Donald Trump's message and that of a while ago too, which has to do with his point of view and, look, for us love and peace.

'We reiterate that we want to keep good relations, so much so that recently our negotiators succeeded in removing the tariffs on steel and aluminum, only the tomato is left, but we are already working', he said.
