The World Health Organization (WHO) Tuesday praised Mexico's professionalism, responsibility and transparency in handling the A/H1N1 flu outbreak.
The experience of Mexico would be essential for the international community, said Philippe Lamy, WHO representative in Mexico, when meeting with Mexican President Felipe Calderon.
Calderon expressed gratitude for the "exceptional work" of the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention and the Canadian government in their coordination with Mexico in curbing the epidemic.
Lamy and Calderon stressed the importance of information exchanges in further understanding of the A/H1N1 flu strain's features and its evolution.
They also discussed measures to further cooperation with other countries in the region to curb the spread of the virus.
