Specialists rate letter from AMLO to Joe Biden
The letter that Andrés Manuel López Obrador sent to Joe Biden to recognize him as president-elect of the United States, was “predictable and myopic” in addition to predicting that “four icy years will come in the Mexico-United States relationship,” according to the interpretation of some specialists.
A month after the elections in the United States, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, president of Mexico, congratulated Joe Biden after the Electoral Council of the United States decided, definitively, that he was the winner of the November election day.
In this regard, Gabriel Guerra, president and general director of Guerra Castellanos y Asociados and columnist for EL UNIVERSAL, pointed out on his social networks that “it would have been better if he had not congratulated him” and that four “icy” years of Mexico-State relations are coming.
Also, Arturo Sarukhan, career Ambassador of the Mexican Foreign Service , international consultant and also a columnist for EL UNIVERSAL, described López Obrador’s letter as “predictable and shortsighted. “
In the letter that López Obrador sent to Joe Biden, he congratulated him, but also called on him, in his role as president of the United States, to respect the principles of “non-intervention.”
It also recognizes its position in favor of migrants “which will allow the plan to promote the development and well-being of the communities in the southeast of Mexico and the Central American countries to continue.”
Finally, the President of Mexico hoped that the opportunity to speak about migration, the development of the region, and other issues will soon be presented.
“In the meantime, I reiterate our congratulations and wish him the best of luck for the good of his people and our nations.”
