Mexico, Argentina to strengthen alliance against Covid-19

Mexico, Feb 25 (Prensa Latina) Mexico and Argentina on Wednesday agreed to strengthen both strategic alliances and to face a common front to fight the Covid-19 crisis and its socioeconomic aftereffects in the region as well as to increase the commercial exchange.

Argentine President Alberto Fernández and his Mexican counterpart Andrés Manuel López Obrador stressed that the electoral observation missions of the Organization of American States (OAS) must adhere strictly to objective technical criteria and strengthen national capacities in electoral matters in order to avoid what happened in Bolivia.

Both presidents recalled that, in October 2019, the OAS behavior triggered a coup d’état in Bolivia and led forced former President Evo Morales to resign. It should be remembered that Mexico and Argentina gave him (Evo Morales) asylum, the text reads.

They also endorsed their willingness to strengthen the Mexico-Argentina alliance and give new dynamism to the strategic relationship through the Political, Economic, Trade and Investment Committees, parts of the Strategic Association Agreement, all in accordance with the roadmap agreed between both foreign ministries.

In addition, the two presidents agreed to jointly work to face the current health crisis and the socioeconomic effects in the post-pandemic era, in order to improve the conditions of the societies of both countries and of Latin America and the Caribbean as a whole.

López Obrador and Fernández reiterated their support for the World Health Organization (WHO) and for the Covax mechanism as a multilateral instrument for equitable access to vaccines.
