Statement by Ambassador Ken Salazar
January 6, 2023

This will be the first time in nine years that a President of the United States has visited Mexico.

When the Biden administration came into office, it revitalized a largely moribund relationship.

After two years of robust engagement by President Biden, and multiple important and productive meetings in Mexico with Vice President Harris and key U.S. cabinet officials, we are poised to bring U.S.-Mexico relations to a new level.

Together, we can make progress on the difficult challenges we face, and seize opportunities for the people of our two nations to live in peace, security and prosperity.

Our integration of North America supply chain, climate, renewable energy, education, security, and migration goals/policies is essential to our progress.
