In a second press release, the Mexican Foreign Secretariat reported Thursday’s meeting as a product of continuous high-level talk to discuss shared objectives including security matters.

The Mexican government also met with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and debated on cooperation strategies to crack down on violence in Mexico.

Specifically, the statement said, the sides addressed collaboration to try to reduce drug use and trafficking consequences in the region, and give priority to avenues to share intelligence against organized crime.

It was recognized that criminal activities in Mexico and the United States are deeply interconnected. What happens on one side of the border directly affects the other side, Ricardo Mejía, Undersecretary of Public Security, said.

Therefore, he added, we work in a coordinated and respectful manner with US authorities to share best practices and intelligence, thereby reducing violent crimes that affect our societies.

The Mexican officials met with Amanda Liskamm, deputy assistant attorney general, and John Creamer, charge d’affaires of the US Embassy in Mexico.

The US authorities shared data and intelligence on current trends in drug use and production, as well as different strategies to reduce the use of these substances.
