Cooperation, Yes. Interventionism, No. Amlo Responds to Trump.
At the request of members of the Mexican-American family LeBarón, on November 4th; a tragic armed attack that killed six children and three women, Trump claims to have decided to designate Mexican cartels as terrorists.
In the wake of the attack, the US president offered his help in fighting organized crime; a petition rejected by his Mexican counterpart, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
On social media, many proclaim that there is a possibility that it is a false flag attack. This to justify possible US military intervention as the Mexican government denounced at a press conference, following an investigation, that the weapons used in the aforementioned attack would come from the United States. In the face of these events, Mexican politicians have reminded Trump that if he wants to help Mexico, stop the arms trade.
For his part, the current Foreign Secretary, Marcelo Ebrard, reiterated that mutual respect between Mexico and the United States is the key to cooperation.
Through his Twitter account, the chancellor assured that this stance has already been externalized to the US authorities, along with the resolution to tackle transnational organized crime.
"Mexico shall never accept any action that constitutes a violation of its national sovereignty. We will act firmly. I have already conveyed the position to the US, as well as our resolve to tackle transnational organized crime."
Ebrard's sayings come after Donald Trump's announcement to designate Mexican cartels such as Sinaloa and Jalisco as terrorists. Faced with this possibility, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported that it would seek a high-level meeting with US authorities to discuss the scope of this determination.
Adrián LeBarón, a relative of the victims, was dissented from all responsibility on the part of the statements of the Yankee representative, matter quotation: "I believe that the high powers from Mexico scratched him (Trump) where they should not, I did not, I swear" and he also insisted saying, "I ask Israel, England, Germany and France name that, not just the White House of the United States."
In the face of this controversy, the strategist in geopolitics, Dr. Alfredo Jalife-Rahme, had already advanced Washington's intentions during a Master's Conference at UNAM(Faculty of Political Science); attributed existing lithium reserves in the Burgos Basin in order to designate Mexican cartels terrorists and apply interventionist measures to drain and exploit their natural resources. "The Texas Permic Basin is going to end and what are they going to do about that? They'll come to Burgos Basin with their fracking," he said to a surprised audience which did not know that Mexico owns in that area, one of the largest reserves of this mineral, which is widely used in the electronics industry worldwide.
