During a press conference in the state of Tabasco, the president said that the Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Ralph Gonsalves, requested the creation of a permanent secretariat in the community to follow up on the agreements and policies adopted by the countries members.
“Now that the leadership has been renewed, the presidency falls on a Caribbean country, in Saint Vincent, the new president asked everyone that he wanted to seek to establish a kind of permanent secretariat of Celac. There is no permanent body of Celac that take charge of following up on all the agreements that we make jointly,” explained the president.
The dignitary commented that Cárdenas Batel has a consensus in most of the governments of the organization, such as the presidents of Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Honduras and Cuba.
“Lázaro first class, professional, with principles, very politically defined,” stressed the head of state, who also commented that Cárdenas is collaborating so that the Aztec nation has a modern health system.
Regardless of the fact that Cárdenas Batel resigned from his position in the Coordination of Advisors to the Presidency of the Republic, López Obrador said that he will continue to collaborate with the Government from Celac.
