USA.- President Andrés Manuel López Obrador met with his United States counterpart, Joseph Biden, in the context of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum.

At the meeting they discussed the relationship of friendship, respect and cooperation between both nations.

On his social networks, the Chief Executive highlighted that Mexico is the main trading partner of the United States and 40 million Mexicans currently work in that country.

Regarding migration, he said that more progress must be made in addressing this phenomenon. On several occasions, the president has recognized that Biden is the first American president to promote legal channels for migration, not to build walls and to understand that migration can be an option and not a forced action, the result of conditions of poverty and insecurity in the countries of origin.

President López Obrador reaffirmed the commitment to continue collaborating, from a humanitarian and solidarity perspective, in the fight against synthetic drugs, especially fentanyl, and the control of precursor trafficking.

In the meeting with the United States delegation, he highlighted that, just as millions of Mexicans live and work in the neighboring country, more and more people of American nationality come to live in Mexico "and are more than welcome."

The delegation of the Government of Mexico was made up of: the Secretaries of Foreign Affairs Alicia Bárcena Ibarra; of Economy, Raquel Buenrostro Sánchez and of Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection, Rosa Icela Rodríguez Velázquez; the secretaries of the National Defense, Luis Cresencio Sandoval González and of the Navy, José Rafael Ojeda Durán; the Mexican ambassador to the United States, Esteban Moctezuma Barragán; the head of the North American Unit of the SRE, Roberto Velasco Álvarez and the head of the President's Assistant Unit, Daniel Asaf Manjarrez.

For the United States, the following participated: Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken; Chief of Staff, Jake Sullivan; Deputy Chief of Staff, Jennifer O'Malley Dillon; the presidential advisor for National Security, Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall; the ambassador to Mexico, Ken Salazar; the Undersecretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Brian Nichols; the special assistant to the president and principal director of the National Security Council for the Western Hemisphere, Juan González and the director of Cross-Border Security of the White House National Security Council, Katie Tobin.
