Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) held a press conference regarding the ongoing talks with the United States over trade tariffs at the National Palace in Mexico City on Thursday.
AMLO praised the behaviour of the American authorities who were open to talks, but highlighted that the Mexican government wants to act ‘firmly’ as to avoid being on the receiving end of unilateral... Еще tariffs.
He also called for ‘an act of unity’ at the border city of Tijuana in a bid to strengthen bonds with the US.
«I wanted to tell you we summon this act of unity with the purpose of defending the dignity of Mexico and friendship with the people of the United States. May the sacred friendship we have with the people of the United States not be broken,” AMLO stated.
US President Donald Trump’s administration has threatened Mexico with sanctions if it fails to reduce the number of migrants who arrive via its southern borders by implementing tariffs on goods.
