Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard confirmed that there will be a face-to-face meeting between President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and his counterpart Joe Biden before the end of this year.
During the conference offered by members of the Mexican delegation that participated in the High-Level Economic Dialogue between Mexico and the United States, the foreign minister confirmed that the meeting will not take place in September, as López Obrador proposed to Biden last August.
“There is going to be a meeting, but it will not be on that exact date, we are going to announce it by mutual agreement,” he informed.
“Will it be this year?” Reporters questioned the chancellor, to which he replied: “Yes, the meeting will take place before the end of this year.”
Ebrard Casaubón described as successful the reactivation of the High-Level Economic Dialogue between Mexico and the US, after six years of having paused.
“It was a successful meeting, it was a dialogue of a very good level, with very good spirits, it has been a long time since we were in a meeting like this, the meetings also count for the mood that exists in our two nations right now,” he stressed.
Finally, Ebrard mentioned that a meeting is already planned for this year between Presidents Joe Biden and Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
In this vein during a press conference, Ebrard confirmed that he had delivered to President Joe Biden a letter in which Andrés Manuel López Obrador requests more work visas in the United States in order to achieve a “regular legal route to be able to do what that he called economic migration”.
