Obama say he won't judge Mexican security movesApril 30, 2013 @ 10:19 am
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he will wait until he meets with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto later this week before judging Mexico's moves to curtail broad access to U.S. security agencies in the battle against drug trafficking and organized crime
Obama, who will travel to Mexico City Thursday, said Pena Nieto is "serious about reform." He said Mexican security changes appear to have more to do with internal Mexican coordination than with dealing with the United States.
The Mexican government said Monday all contact for U.S. law enforcement will now go through the federal Interior Ministry.
Obama said: "I'm not going to yet judge how this will alter the relationship between the United States and Mexico until I've heard directly from them what exactly they are trying to accomplish."
