I want to tell the Mexican people that regarding the elections in the United States, the Government’s stance is to wait until authorities from that country make a decision on the winner of the presidency, he said in his regular morning press conference at the National Palace.
We cannot act imprudently and it is not only a matter of form but also of substance. I have the faculty and, at the same time, the obligation to adjust to the constitutional mandate regarding foreign policy, he pointed out.
He read Article 89 of the Constitution, which establishes that foreign policy must be guided by the principles of non-interference and self-determination of the peoples, in essence, what (Benito) Juarez said that respect for the rights of others is peace.
We cannot interfere in other countries’ politics and we have to be respectful of the decision made by foreign peoples and governments. It does not mean that we are against or in favor of anyone. We have a relationship of respect and non-intervention with (President Donald) Trump and we do not have any differences with Candidate (Joe) Biden, Lopez Obrador noted.
