MAY 22, 2024

WASHINGTON (apro).-Antony Blinken, Secretary of State of Joe Biden’s administration, downplayed the merits of the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in the fight against drug trafficking, especially synthetic drugs made with fentanyl.

“They (the Mexicans) have seized record amounts of fentanyl, they have dismantled production centers but, all of that is because of our assistance; our help, an example of the allow them to make additional resources to strengthen their capacity,” Blinken stated.

In a hearing before the Appropriations Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. foreign policy chief attributed the Mexican government’s progress against drug trafficking to the money they receive from Washington.

“It is very important that we deploy to the border the most effective and modern technology to detect the movement of fentanyl and synthetic opioids into the United States,” Blinken added in his remarks to the Committee to justify and request more budget for his Secretariat.

“We have seen the overwhelming amount of fentanyl coming into this country through Mexico, so moving technology to both sides of the border makes a difference,” Blinken stressed in the question and answer exchange with members of the Appropriations Committee.

The Secretary of State stressed as “critical” that the United States, with its financial assistance, continues to build a better capacity to contain its allied countries in the fight against drug trafficking and especially the production of synthetic drugs.

“Mexico is a good example of that, we have significantly increased our collaborative efforts with them in recent years to try to destroy, dismantle and eliminate these transnational criminal organizations,” he told lawmakers.

As a result of U.S. support for López Obrador’s government, Blinken said that the Mexicans have detected financial networks associated with drug trafficking and with intelligence information captured first and second-in-command of criminal organizations.
