Washington DC, 27 de junio de 2008


The Embassy of Mexico welcomes the approval of the Merida Initiative (contained in HR 2642) yesterday in the US Senate. This bipartisan authorization follows the decision taken in the House of Representatives on June 19th and constitutes a crucial step forward towards our common goal of working together to shut down drug trafficking syndicates on both sides of the border.


The Embassy of Mexico wishes to thank and recognize the leadership and statesmanship of all those members of the Senate, who have supported what is certainly a new paradigm for bilateral cooperation, between our two nations in the fight against organized crime.
