The highlights of “La Mañanera”


In his morning press conference, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that a meeting will be held at the Ministry of the Interior to reorganize the airspace.

“There is a meeting in the Government to order the airspace, there is no purpose to affect the lines. There was apparently an error, the investigation is being done. The director did resign, and even the president (Vidente) Fox (…) blaming me and talking about Felipe Ángeles, when this incident, fortunately, did not escalate, and the incident was here at the AICM, ”he said.

This, after the incident recorded on May 7 at the Mexico City International Airport, in which two Volaris company planes were about to collide.

Hence, the president denied that this type of incident is due to the redesign of the airspace and blamed “the conservatives” for fueling the resistance against him.

“It is that they question everything, even if it falls into ridicule. I don’t know what’s wrong with them, they should calm down (…) It’s a desire for us to do badly, “she said.

“There will be understanding, the same lines have already come to offer that they will have more flights from the Felipe Ángeles airport. It is that I will tell you the story shortly, that the Reforma will not tell it, I can tell it to you, ”she stressed.

He announced that it will be from October or November when airlines such as Aeroméxico, Volaris and Viva Aerobus increase the number of flights from the AIFA.

The president of the Council (of Aeroméxico) came to tell me that as of August they will increase the number of flights, and that in November or December they will have 36 flights on the Felipe Ángeles. And Volaris and Viva Aerobús are going to do the same”, he said.

“We want to express our gratitude to the peoples and governments of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Belize and Cuba, to the peoples and governments for the respectful treatment, I would say affectionate, affectionate, that they showed us. We are aware that it is not just about the Government of Mexico but fundamentally about the affection and respect that they have for it, the admiration that our neighbors, brothers, have for the people of Mexico. They treated us very well,” he expressed.

He stressed that Belize will join the Central American countries in which the Sembrando Vida program already operates.

He stressed that around 30,000 agricultural workers of Guatemalan origin who work in Chiapas will be registered with the Mexican Institute of Social Security so that they have medical care and social security.

The objective is “that the purpose we have made of guaranteeing the right to health, medical attention, medicines, analyzes or free clinical studies for those who do not have social security is fulfilled. We have already started, but we have this deficit (of doctors) that we are solving.”

The head of the Executive reaffirmed the call to consolidate the unity of America through a model similar to that of the European Community.

“That is also why we are proposing that at the next summit to be held in Los Angeles, everyone be invited, that no one excludes anyone and that we can dialogue, accept our differences, but also reach agreements on everything that unites us and it can help us, strengthen us as a region in the world. That’s basically our approach,” he emphasized.
