Mexico City.- president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador reported that he would not attend the summit of member countries Asia Pacific Alliance given the poor relationship with the government of Peru.
The invitation to this forum was given by the American President Joe Biden although the Mexican President has made it clear that he has no interest in participating in this event.
“I won’t take part in it San Francisco, because we have no relations with Peru and this is about taking care of the Asia-Pacific region and, with all due respect, we do not want to be involved in that. President (Joe) Biden sent me to invite him,” he explained.
Instead, López Obrador suggested Biden visit Mexico again, where he gave him three options: Altamira (Tamaulipas), Salina Cruz (Oaxaca) or traveling around Mayan trends.
“I suggested (Biden) two things: First, we would be very happy if he came to visit us, for example, to invite him to see the installation that we are doing together with a company called Fortress (Energy), which is dedicated to this Topic dedicated to the construction of liquefaction plants. They are building a very large plant in Altamira, the most important for gas exports to Europe, and they are working with the CFE, and I invite President Biden to do this.
I also invite you to visit Salinas Cruz for the Transisthmian and I also invite you to the Mayan train. Then he comes or I discuss development issues, migration, drug trafficking, all the issues on the bilateral agenda, but for this reason I cannot go to San Francisco and we can meet in Washington,” he argued.
AMLO acknowledged that the American president had been “very friendly and attentive” and that there were good relations with the government of the neighboring country to the north.
“If it is not possible in November, we can see each other in January, although it will be very cold because the North America Summit will be held in Canada,” he added.
