Mexican and Colombian Presidents meet to discuss joint anti-crime efforts

The Presidents of Mexico and Colombia met earlier this week in Mexico City to discuss an anti-money laundering plan and immigration reform to combat transnational organized crime. The intention of the meeting was to identify money laundering fronts and share information of criminals who may travel between both countries.

Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) and Colombian president Iván Duque announced that they reached an agreement to share immigration and judicial background information. They said that this system would help security forces focus on dangerous criminal targets who intend to travel between both countries while protecting civilians who visit for legitimate business, academic or tourist interests.

Meeting details
The meeting took place at the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (often shorten as "Tec de Monterrey") campus in Santa Fe, Mexico City on 10 March 2020. It was held privately.

President Duque pointed out that the Mexican government was working diligently to strengthen its national security and work closely with Colombia to tackle similar problems both countries face. "We have always expressed it to Mexico that our idea is to share our experiences with them, so they can [improve] their public policies", Duque said.

Duque admitted that Colombia has been working with multiple Mexican law enforcement agencies for a "long time" and Mexico and Colombia often exchange law enforcement information. When asked about his meeting with AMLO, Duque said it was "very constructive".

Unlike other bilateral agreements done in the past between Colombia and Mexico, officials stated that this plan would have clear goals and deadlines that need to be met. They said that Colombian and Mexican officials would meet in person "periodically" to ensure that the project is moving forward. Duque told Mexican reporters that Colombia has such systems with authorities in Ecuador and Peru, with whom they share their southern border.

Background and bilateral ties
Mexico and Colombia enjoy good bilateral relations and their diplomatic ties date back to the 1800s. When Mexico first gained its independence from Spain in 1810, Colombia was the first country in the world to recognize it. Over the course of two centuries, Colombia and Mexico have grown closer since they continue to share historical and cultural affinities. The issue they confront together for the past few decades has been organized crime activity.

    1. Dude the politicians earn biiig money through bribes. You think they gonna say 'no thank you' and abolish the WoD?

      The top dogs (politicians /military/police/judges/ lawmakers/lawyers/bankers) are making fortunes on the drug trade. That's the key to understand the fucked up situation we are in.

  3. Bullshit Photo Op.

    AMLO. “Action not Pictures.”

    As the saying goes: No balls (AMLO has none), No Glory.

    *Financial Intelligence units, along with the US Department of Treasury and other Agencies, already know about suspect transactions.

    Meanwhile...... Barbarism, lawlessness, corporate corruption, political corruption, moral corruption and more, continue to sink Mexico into the Abyss. 🔥

    1. If crime goes down in Mexico you're the type of dude that'll give credit to the corona virus and say the criminals decided to quarantine themselves rather than risk exposure...

    2. Queso. USA is rich but poor and the drugs help us "fly so high when were stoned". Therefore we pay the price and Mexico pays also. Exactly who is at fault?

    3. 4:38 AMLO TRIED 3 TIMES to become president and he won all three, but the election was stolen and he got lucky he did not get murdered all three times, he won on the third try and is doing a very good job in spite of your "opinion", and he is still supported by his people who elected him.
      You need to bring up your charges rather than your ignorant slanted opinions, AMLO is not murdering the mexican people just to please your owners in Washington or in Mexico with a successful war on drugs, as measured in government murders, Falsos Positivos and disappearances like FECAL and EPN who may have had other people's balls and pants to do war for them while they stole all they could from Mexico.

      MORE THAN A FEW SELECT US PRESIDENTS

    8. AMLO won against FECAL, against EPN and against "el canallin" Ricky Anaya and "el pinto" meade, his victory was recognized by EPN, MEADE AND ANAYA.

  4. The issue Mexico and Colombia share the most since the days of their independence wars is the present corruption of both governments, Ivan Duque is the puppet of Alvaro Uribe Velez, who betrayed his Godfather Pablo Escobar Gaviria and is a suspect in the murder if his own father which he diligently blamed on guerrilla drug traffickers who he fought with volunteer paracos and milicos and associated drug trafficking guerrillas" to create Falsos Positivos and clandestine mass graves like La Macarena...
    Lopez Obrador "needs" to work with Ivan Duque like he needs a bullet through his forehead, EPN, fecal, fox, cedillo and salinas, already did, even el negro durazo and amado Carrillo Fuentes alreddy did it,
    it did not go well for mexicans.

  6. Columbia's homicide rate is far lower than Mexico's. Maybe implementations of Columbia's strategy can help Mexico reverse/stem the violence in Mexico.

    1. As long as bozo Obrador gets kickbacks from Cartels, he will tip off, what Columbia is up to.

    2. 7:25 Colombia's murder rate was all government owned, not for nothing since Juan Manuel Santos decided and gave guerrillas a break it has come down, while ballsy daisy Uribe fought like a bitch against peace from the senate where he got to escape the consequences of his crimes of state and others.

    1. It is time for mexicans to go to la verga with a president of their own choice rather than getting pushed to hell by a bunch of bitches who have sold out to foreigners whose foreign bank accounts are being repossessed by their foreign friends for being illegal or being blocked by a mexican government that seeks restitution and punishment.
      7:24 AMLO does not need to know everything about banking, his financial investigation units do that for him, AMLO has a good team...
