Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced on Wednesday that he would refrain from participating in the North American Leaders’ Summit. He also questioned the leaders of Canada and the United States, requesting respect for Mexico in response to various diplomatic, commercial, and migration issues that have arisen against the country.

AMLO questioned the leaders of Canada and the United States, asking for respect towards Mexico, in response to various diplomatic, commercial, and migratory fronts against Mexico. He stated that he would only attend the North American Leaders’ Summit if Mexico receives respectful treatment from the US and Canada.

This is in reference to reports published by US media alleging connections between the president’s associates and drug trafficking, as well as the Canadian threat to reintroduce visas to control the entry of Mexicans allegedly linked to organized crime.

This morning, López Obrador was questioned about the controversy regarding the threats from the United States to retaliate against steel and aluminum imports through tariffs. The US is concerned about the increase in trade between both countries, which, they argue, goes against the USMCA’s aim to diversify the origin of these materials.

Yesterday, the Secretary of Economy, Raquel Buenrostro, warned that Mexico could also retaliate and argued that these measures have political motivations. This morning, the president reaffirmed this statement, indicating his awareness of “conservatives in Mexico lobbying” in both countries.

With this statement, he not only referred to the issue of steel but also to Canada’s threats to impose visas on Mexicans. “What a coincidence. But first, let them find out, let them see the polls, let them come to their senses. Can they manipulate the Mexican people with these measures of dirty warfare?” he exclaimed.

But first, let them find out, let them see the polls, let them come to their senses. Can they manipulate the Mexican people with these measures of dirty warfare?” he exclaimed.

In that regard, he sent a message to his two counterparts: “Let the circumstance in Mexico be understood, where a transformation is taking place, and there is a reactionary group of corrupt individuals who felt they owned Mexico, who led Mexico into decline, who want to return to their former ways, and since they have a lot of money, they resort to everything. I would like President Biden or his advisors and Prime Minister Trudeau to be aware of the campaign against AMLO, the narco president.”
