AMLO calls X Summit meetings with Canada and US ‘positive’

Mexico City, Mexico — President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says X Summit meetings with both Canada and the US resulted in positive results. On Thursday, López Obrador said X Summit meetings and the bilateral meetings resulted in positive results and agreements that will benefit the three nations and their peoples.

“It was a very productive and fraternal meeting within the framework of the good neighbor policy, so there are very favorable elements; our economy is very stable, among other things, due to this good relationship with Canada and the United States,” he said.

The three leaders agreed to accelerate integration and economic growth by reducing Asian imports by 25 percent and replacing them with local imports, which could mean multi-million dollar investments.

They also agreed to evaluate the migratory situation of thousands of Mexicans so that during 2023-2024, the government can focus on facilitating access to US citizenship to the more than 1.2 million Mexicans who live in that country.

“We dealt with the immigration issue and our support for our migrants was made known, our interest that there be no persecution, (…) that they continue to insist on the United States Congress for the regularization of our migrant compatriots,” reported López Obrador.

The Government of Mexico also reported that “the United States is developing the humanitarian permit program that has had very good results in the case of Venezuelans, but now it has been extended to other nationalities with the same purpose that there is a regulated path established to request to work or be in the United States.”
