The virtual president-elect of Mexico reported that they talked about the relationship between both countries, trade, the entry of weapons into Mexico, women’s issues, and that she was congratulated on her victory.

The virtual president-elect, Claudia Sheinbaum, reported that the meeting with the delegation of United States President Joe Biden was cordial and informal, but they discussed security, migration, and the entry of weapons into Mexico.

At the transition house, located in the Iztapalapa borough, Sheinbaum detailed that Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, President Biden’s national security advisor, and the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, Ken Salazar, were present, as well as Omar García Harfuch, former Secretary of Public Security, and Juan Ramón de la Fuente, transition coordinator.

“We talked in general, obviously without any agreement, but simply an informal conversation about trade issues, security issues, migration, and also issues that interest us, such as the entry of weapons from the United States to Mexico,” she reported.

Sheinbaum detailed that she proposed the possibility of continuing bilateral meetings, as well as the investment at the southern border.

“We talked about these bilateral meetings that they have with the President, Secretary Rosa Icela, our interest in continuing these high-level meetings once we reach the Presidency. That was the extent of the conversations; there was no discussion about the border. Regarding migration, we talked about our policy,” she reported.

She indicated that, for the moment, during this transition period, she does not plan to visit the United States. However, she would receive Mexicans living in the neighboring country.

On social media, Sheinbaum wrote that the meeting was also to exchange points of view and strengthen relations of friendship, as commercial and cooperation partners between the countries.

“Facing the bilateral agenda that we will continue working on from next October 1. We will continue with the policy of friendship, dialogue, and understanding, with respect for our sovereignty,” she posted on her X account.
