We congratulate Mr. Lopez Obrador of the National Regeneration Movement Party on his election as the next president of Mexico based on the initial results issued by Mexico’s electoral authorities. These elections demonstrated the Mexican people’s commitment to democratic values.
The United States and Mexico share a lasting friendship based on strong economic, cultural, and historical ties that bind our nations. The United States looks forward to deepening our vibrant partnership with Mexico on security and prosperity for our citizens and our shared democratic values.
We look forward to working with the Peña Nieto administration during the transition period, and with President-elect Lopez Obrador when the new administration takes office on December 1, to continue strengthening our partnership and advancing common goals for both our nations.
