When he was asked at his morning press briefing at the National Palace if he discussed the issue of the founder of Wikileaks with Biden during their meeting at the White House, Lopez Obrador said that he gave him a letter about it.

He said that in this letter he explained to Biden that the Australian journalist did not commit a serious crime, did not kill anyone, did not violate any human rights, so arresting him is a permanent affront against freedom of speech and of people, and that is Mexico’s perception of the Assange case.

He reaffirmed Mexico’s protection and assylum to Assange but admitted that the US government has not replied so far.
