President Bush Calls President Calderon

Statement by Ambassador Antonio O. Garza

Mexico City, November 5, 2007 - “President Bush called President Calderon this afternoon to express his deepest sympathy and that of the American people for the suffering caused by the flooding in Tabasco and Chiapas. President Bush expressed his desire to help the Mexican people meet their immediate needs and rebuild their lives and communities, initially through the $300,000 donated by the U.S.

“The President also congratulated President Calderon for the October 30 record seizure of over 23 tons of cocaine by Mexican law enforcement and military personnel. President Bush recognizes the Calderon administration’s dedication to working together with the United States in the mutual fight against organized crime and drug traffickers.

“Presidents Bush and Calderon reiterated their commitment to the far-reaching, close and cooperative bilateral relationship between neighbors and friends, who share not only co-responsibility confronting problems, but also the desire to help one another when our citizens are in need.”
