VP Harris Meets with Lopez Obrador

Vice President Kamala Harris and Mexican President Lopez Obrador met virtually earlier this month to discuss the important partnership between our two countries and recognized the urgency to work together toward economic recovery, improved climate resilience, and additional economic opportunities and security cooperation. Both leaders agreed to join forces to establish a strategic partnership to address the root causes of migration from countries in the Northern Triangle region and noted their commitment to spur its economic development.

Following their conversation, Harris will travel to Mexico City on June 8 to meet with President Lopez Obrador and discuss migration issues and joint efforts to promote economic development in the south of the country and Central America. This will be her first trip abroad after taking office, and Harris will also visit Guatemala to foster and strengthen a strategic partnership with Central America.
