On Saturday, September 11th, Ken Salazar, the new U.S. ambassador to Mexico arrived in the Mexican capital promising to work together with officials here to address common challenges like the pandemic and migration.
Mr. Salazar will meet in the coming days with President Andres Manuel López Obrador to present his credentials as ambassador
“We’ll work to ensure we have a migration system that works both for the United States and Mexico,” Salazar said in Spanish after arriving at the Mexico City international airport. He didn’t answer questions from the press.
Salazar arrived in Mexico two days after top advisers to presidents Joe Biden and López Obrador met in Washington to restart a high-level economic dialogue. Officials said they are eager to advance on topics as migration, infrastructure, and trade.
Migration has remained a particular issue for both countries.
