Mexico could fight organized crime better with U.S. help: presidents
font size    

The governments of Mexico and the United States on Wednesday issued a joint statement which recognized the fight against organized crime in Mexico could be boosted with greater help and support from the United States. The two nations' presidents, Felipe Calderon of Mexico, and George W. Bush, restated their commitment to working together and sharing information between U.S. and Mexican authorities, especially on the border.

Calderon has made fighting crime one of his government's key priorities, after it exploded in several Mexican states, causing hundreds of deaths, including both citizens and police, some of whom have been decapitated.

The leaders expressed their commitment to boosting bilateral cooperation, against crime and the weapons trade which breeds violence, and also against trade in drugs as well as money laundering.

The two leaders' statement also describes U.S.-Mexico border migration as a shared responsibility which is one of the most critical matters for citizens' future well-being. At the same time they underlined the need to generate productive investment focused on creating more and better paid jobs in Mexico, as part of any migration strategy.

They also insisted that economic growth and job creation are essential for reducing poverty and inequality, and agreed to improve living standards in this direction.

They also emphasized that it is the work of both government to speed and ease the secure and solid flow of legitimate people and merchandise, including the development of better infrastructure and the more efficient use of what exists.

They also said they wished to increase competition in North America, based on security and prosperity, and expressed their interest in working together towards full trade in food products. They added that they would intensify discussions in the bilateral corn and bean group.

After the two-day visit, Bush will return directly to the U.S., while Calderon will travel on to Cancun, a resort city in the eastern state of Quintana Roo.
