Mexico’s Foreign Minister arrives in Washington for drug and arms trafficking meetings

Mexico City, Mexico — Mexico’s foreign minister arrived in Washington D.C. Thursday where he will participate in meetings on fentanyl and arms trafficking. The meetings will be held with U.S. and Canadian counterparts.

Mexico’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard will participate in the meetings which are scheduled to begin Friday with members of the security cabinet.

Mexico’s priority will be to stop arms trafficking from the United States and to reduce the firepower of criminal organizations and increase security in Mexican communities.

Mexico is the main international ally of the United States in the fight against fentanyl.

The meetings will be held at the White House between U.S. and Mexican officials, which will be followed by a working lunch at the Department of Justice. Later, officials from Mexico, the United States and Canada will participate in a trilateral security meeting.
