What Do AMLO & Biden Have to Gain in Today's Meeting?
International Trade attorney Carlos Véjar was interviewed by The Dialogue's Latin America Advisor about Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador's scheduled meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden on July 12 at the White House. Mr. Véjar talked about the most important issues up for discussion between López Obrador and Biden. He also discussed security concerns related to the organized crime activities surrounding illegal immigration, arms control and drug cartels' presence in the United States.
"These are clear bilateral issues that cannot be solved alone and hopefully, those issues will be addressed. Nonetheless, many expect the United States to take a hard stance against the Mexican president for not shifting its ‘hugs and not bullets’ policy against criminal activity in Mexico," he said.
