The Mexican president’s statement came at his morning press conference at the National Palace in response to a question about a tweet by Blinken.
The US Secretary of State referred on Twitter to the “high number of journalists killed in Mexico this year” and expressed his alleged concern about the issue.
Lopez Obrador considered the deaths of press professionals very regrettable, but he assured that in none of the cases will those responsible have gone unpunished.
They are not crimes of the State and Blinken is intervening in the internal affairs of our country, Lopez Obrador asserted.
We are attending to the causes, affirmed the President, who denounced the continuous interference of United States governments in Mexico’s internal affairs.
It has been demonstrated that there is a link between conservative groups in Mexico and Washington and we would like to know why the United States finances these sectors to attack a legitimate government, he pointed out.
