The Mexican government continues to be concerned with the electoral campaign in the United States, announced Claudia Ruiz Massieu of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Also, after assuring that her office would protect the interests of the Mexican people despite the results of the next U.S. presidential election in November, the functionary spoke of her preoccupation in respect to the statements of Donald Trump about his fellow U.S. citizens.

She affirmed that his feelings aren’t shared by the majority of the U.S. population, with whom she said Mexico has a similitude in values and world vision. The assertions of Trump, she said, reflect his ignorance and lack of knowledge of the the Mexico-United States relationship.

In addition, she said that Mexican emigrants as well as second and third generation Mexican Americans generate eight percent of the gross domestic product of the United States, with more than 600 thousand companies that produce a million dollars a minute, a fact which makes the country’s bilateral relationship “important, necessary and intrinsically strategic” for the development of both countries.

Important, necessary and intrinsically strategic.”

Of the possibility that Trump could gain the Republican nomination and the presidency of the United States, she said that the Mexican government would continue to protect its interests and that of Mexicans, defending the rights and dignity of our country, in addition to seeking the most constructive way of working with the United States.
