President of Mexico criticizes US interventionist policy

Mexico City, Apr 24 (Prensa Latina) The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, today criticized the United States for maintaining its foreign policy practices that are interventionist, deploring a report from the State Department on human rights.

“An interventionist policy has predominated, these rulings have predominated, and they get involved in internal affairs. “What do they have to get involved, in the differences we have in the Judiciary,” he said at his usual meeting with the press.

“Who are they to intervene, flagrantly violating international law, the independence and sovereignty of peoples. We are respectful,” he added.

The president described as “superficial and unsubstantiated” the North American report that accuses Mexico of alleged violations of human rights and rejected the idea that the northern country interferes in the internal affairs of other States, gives opinions and tries to give letters of good conduct, as if they are judge of the world.

He insisted the White House respects sovereignty while developing economic cooperation, fighting drug trafficking and providing humanitarian aid.

Apart from that topic, López Obrador addressed national issues such as the legal process for the disappearance of the 43 students from Ayotzinapa and emphasized that his government is considering opening new charges against 80 accused in that case who were released.

“They are free and we will do it in due time, we are waiting for the time to open new files,” he explained.
