U.S. and Mexico will work on security

Mexico City.- United States Ambassador in Mexico, Anthony Wayne, said on Tuesday that Washington will work with President Enrique Peña Nieto’s administration on a broad range of security issues facing both countries.

After a meeting with the Interior Secretariat’s Undersecretary for Planning and Institutional Protection Manuel Mondragón y Kalb, Wayne said that the officials agreed to find new ways to collaborate on security issues, while respecting each nation’s sovereignty and domestic laws.

“Even as we seek to place greater emphasis on economic and social connectivity between our two nations, we look forward to addressing shared security challenges created by transnational organized crime,” Wayne said. “By working together to reduce violence and improve public security, we can create an environment in which our citizens will thrive and prosper.”

The officials also discussed existing bilateral security agreements, with Wayne promising continued U.S. support for Mexico’s bid to build capable and trustworthy local, state and national law enforcement agencies
