On Friday, Mexico’s president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, asserted he had no awareness of a US general’s assertion that Russian intelligence officers are stationed in Mexico but also maintained Mexico’s non-interventionist position.
When questioned about the US general’s comments, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador responded,
General Glen VanHerck of the United States Air Force informed a Senate panel on Thursday that Mexico is home to the highest proportion of Russia’s military intelligence operations.
He continued by proclaiming that they keep a close watch on their ability to impact U.S. opportunities. A demand for information from Russia’s embassy in Mexico was not returned instantly.
Even though the US ambassador to Mexico, Ken Salazar, has encouraged Mexican politicians to assist the US in defending Kyiv in fighting Russia’s invasion, Lopez Obrador has continued to maintain a neutral status in the Ukraine crisis as it lingers.
