U.S. President Biden congratulates Mexico on historic election

Mexico City, Mexico — U.S. President Joe Biden has congratulated Mexico on their electoral process in the historic election of Claudia Sheinbaum.

President Joe Biden called President Andrés Manuel López Obrador of Mexico to congratulate him and the Mexican people on their free and fair electoral process that resulted in the historic election of President-elect Claudia Sheinbaum.

He thanked President López Obrador for the strong and constructive partnership they have built to enhance their bilateral economic cooperation, manage migration at the shared border, and advance regional security and prosperity.

During the call, President Biden informed President López Obrador that he has approved three new Presidential permits for international bridge projects in Texas that will benefit local communities and strengthen the U.S.-Mexico economic relationship by building infrastructure that promotes increased trade travel.

The two leaders pledged to maintain their strong cooperation through the completion of President López Obrador’s term in office and to ensure a stable, productive bilateral relationship during the transition to the administration of President-elect Sheinbaum.

Claudia Sheinbaum won the presidential election by a landslide Sunday. She will be the country’s first female president.
