The statement denounces that they have already filed a complaint in this regard and are preparing others, but without giving more details about it, nor the current status or place where they would do it or against which company they are planning to litigate them.

According to the Foreign Ministry, Ebrard revealed this after taking part on Wednesday in a telephone conversation between President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and US Adviser for the Summit of the Americas, Senator Cristopher Dodd.

The statement indicates that these new lawsuits would be added to the one filed by Mexico in a Massachusetts court against 11 arms manufacturing companies in the United States in August 2021, which it accuses of negligent trade that has killed thousands of people in this country.

Ebrard also spoke about the most recent shooting in the city of Buffalo, New York, attributed to a white supremacist, who shot civilians for ideological reasons.

After comparing it to the massacre in El Paso, Texas, in 2019, in which six Mexicans were killed and another nine injured, the foreign minister insisted that white supremacism in the United States is one of Mexico’s main concerns within the bilateral relationship.

This whole situation, he said, is closely related to the observations made by Mexico in its claims to the United States and arms dealers, in the sense that there is no logic in the sales, hence the Mexican government describes this situation as of corporate irresponsibility.
