Mexico's New President Preaches Non-Intervention - Except With America!


Mexican President-Elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador's administration has promoted a "non-intervention" foreign policy toward nearby countries – except for America!

The socialist leader is set to begin his term this December and his pick for foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, emphasizes a non-interventionist approach for countries south of Mexico.

For one thing, Mexico didn't recognize Venezuela's presidential election due to its membership in the Lima Group, an intergovernmental organization of Latin American countries and also Canada.

"Mexico will follow a respectful foreign policy of non-intervention…and right now, we don't expect to abandon that policy," said Ebrard. "That does not mean that we're not concerned about the situation in one country or another, in this case Venezuela."

"We're going to look into it and see how we can design, or help contribute, in the best way."

On the other hand, López Obrador's is on record claiming it's a "human right" for migrants to seek a better life in the country on his northern border, the United States.

"We will defend… the migrants of the world who, by necessity, have to leave their villages to seek life in the United States," said Obrador in a rally. "It is a human right that we will defend."
