The president of Mexico, Andr茅s Manuel L贸pez Obrador, returned this Monday to thank his Argentine counterpart, Alberto Fern谩ndez, for the letter he sent him and did not rule out a visit to the Southern Cone in the coming months.

I considered it important to make it known because it is very well writtenhe is very sincere, very honest, it is a very good political proclamation,鈥 said the president during his morning press conference from the National Palace.

L贸pez Obrador released on Sunday the letter that the Argentine president delivered to his wife, Beatriz Guti茅rrez M眉ller, after his tour of Chile and Argentina, where he participated in the commemoration of Women鈥檚 Day, in response to a letter of support to the president Argentinian.

On the proposal to strengthen the joint work between Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, L贸pez Obrador specified that the best thing would be to seek the integration of all of America.

鈥淚 agree with him (Fern谩ndez) in almost everything. I just think that regardless of this alliance in our America, the integration of all of America should be sought, 鈥漢e said.

Said Latin American countries must support Central America and fight for continental integrationsince it is the most important region in the world with many capacities and at the same time it is possible to eliminate the gaps between its inhabitants.

鈥淚t is the continent with the greatest economic and commercial potential鈥, he indicated and highlighted its technological progress and its natural wealth, in addition to having strength in consumption and purchase.

The president recalled that in May he will travel to Cuba and Central America and did not rule out a possible visit to Argentina. 鈥淵es, I would like to be in the Southern Cone,鈥 he pointed out.

He recalled that in June he will visit Los Angeles, California, where he hopes to meet with the president of the United States, Joe Biden.

The president of Mexico had read last Thursday the letter he sent to his 鈥渇riend鈥 to congratulate him for 鈥渞esisting the right-wing offensive鈥 and 鈥渇acing an attack from the conservative elite鈥 in the face of Argentina鈥檚 agreement with the IMF to refinance debts of some 41.23 billion euros ($45 billion).

L贸pez Obrador agreed with Fern谩ndez in holding the government of the right-wing Mauricio Macri (2015-2019) responsible for the debt and criticizing the IMF, although the hard-line sector of Kirchnerism has also opposed the agreement, which the Chamber of Deputies endorsed on Friday and will now debate the Senate.

This Monday, the Mexican president returned to refer to the issue and said that Fern谩ndez is 鈥渁 very good ruler鈥 although he faces the same problems as Mexico because he had to face the debt acquired in previous governments.

Facing the same problems as here, with a rapacious minority that was used to looting, to stealing, which as happens here in Mexico also in Argentina have control of most of the information media鈥, he commented.

Fern谩ndez and L贸pez Obrador have been close since November 2019, when the Argentine visited Mexico as president-elect, his first destination abroad.

Later, already as head of state, Fern谩ndez returned in February 2021 to ask the Mexican president to create 鈥渁 Latin American axis.鈥
