Calderon Administration Committed to Challenging Corruption

Statement by Ambassador Antonio O. Garza

Mexico City, November 21, 2008 - “Today’s actions by Attorney General Medina Mora demonstrate how seriously the Government of Mexico is taking the challenge of rooting out narcotics-related corruption. President Calderon has taken firm measures to combat corruption within his law enforcement agencies, and his administration has shown the fortitude to follow the fight against narco-trafficking and organized crime wherever it may lead.

“Mexico’s determination is mirrored in the United States’ unwavering commitment to cooperate with Mexico in the fight against narco-trafficking and organized crime. We maintain complete confidence in our Mexican partners as we work together in our shared effort to defeat criminal networks and in our shared responsibility to protect our communities.”
