Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — Quintana Roo Governor Mara Lezama lead the Wednesday commemoration of the 202nd anniversary of the creation of the Mexican Navy.

Governor Mara Lezama and Admiral of the General Corps DEM Abraham Eloy Caballero Rosas, Commander of the Ninth Naval Region, led the commemorative ceremony for the 202nd Anniversary of the Creation of the Mexican Navy.

At the Ninth Naval Region, Admiral Caballero Rosas read the message that the Secretary of the Navy, José Rafael Ojeda Durán, addressed to the sailors of Mexico.

“We are sailors of good, dedication, commitment and work, who in times of change take on the challenge of transformation. It has been 202 years of directing efforts for the well-being of Mexicans. Our mission is to ensure the peace, security and well-being of our people.”

Previously, Captain Marco Trejo Cruz made a summary of the creation of the Mexican Navy. Its mission is to use the naval power of the federation for external defense and contribute to internal security at sea, in the air and on land, maintaining the rule of law in marine areas, coasts, rivers, lake areas and port areas of Mexico, maintaining the rule of law, sovereignty, and promoting the development of the country.

Governor Mara Lezama, who received the honors of ordinance, recognized the work, the discipline, the spirit of sacrifice that the Mexican Navy makes through people emanating from the people with values and principles instilled to serve Mexico without expecting anything in exchange more than the satisfaction of the duty fulfilled.

Mara Lezama recalled that in November 2022, thanks to the disposition of Secretary Ojeda Durán, the Government of Quintana Roo signed an agreement with SEMAR through which the first 50 sailors, out of a total of 200, arrived in Quintana Roo, deployed to reinforce security tasks, joining the elements of state Citizen Security.

She highlighted that Quintana Roo is one of the privileged 17 states in the country that has coastlines and the presence of sailors from the Mexican Navy provides security to the population on coasts and ports, as well as in the face of natural phenomena such as against poachers, perpetrators, smugglers, human and drug traffickers and potential enemies who intend to sail our waters to violate the Law and the Rule of Law.

Mara Lezama also recognized the institutional support in vacation devices, in territorial surveillance and in special operations to combat crime and preserve order, in conjunction and coordination with other forces of the state, the federation and the municipalities; as well as in containment and collection tasks of sargassum on our coasts and beaches.

“Today more than ever we recognize the work of our sailors and with their example, we reaffirm the joint commitment by which we seek for Mexico and Quintana Roo to be, both on land and at sea, the hope of a better future for our future generations. ” Lezama stated.
