By Aaron Humes: According to Brazil 24/7, the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is not conducting his present trip through northern Central America and Cuba as a vacation.

The president is now in Cuba, meeting with their Cuban counterpart, Miguel Díaz-Canel, sealing a relationship that has grown closer since he came to power in 2018 and that has made Mexico an ally of the island in the region.

The visit of President López Obrador to the island will be a milestone in relations between Cuba and Mexico, said the deputy minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment (Mencex), Ana Teresita González.

López Obrador today paid tribute to Cuban National Hero José Martí before an official reception, a prelude to talks between the two heads of state, and the signing of bilateral agreements.

This working sprint is part of Mexico’s strategy to expand and strengthen ties of friendship in the region, as well as deepen ties in political, economic, and cooperation policies for the development of the region and the well-being of its people.

And the president intends to follow the progress of his development strategy to contain migration and, if necessary, renew his speech to address the roots of the problems of this phenomenon.

López Obrador has been preaching cooperation for development with programs such as the implementation of the social programs Sembrando Vida and Jovenes Construcando o Futuro for Central American countries. He also highlighted that Central American countries and Mexico suffer from the same problems: poverty, inequality, frustration in the countryside, social disintegration, marginalization, and the historical denial of effective rights for the majority. For López Obrador, it is not possible to face the migratory phenomenon only with stricter laws, walls and police, but with well-being, security, and peace in the migrants’ places of origin.

President Lopez Obrador has reprimanded the government of US President Joe Biden for not having delivered the four billion dollars he offered to invest in the aforementioned programs.

The governments of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador have agreed to “lay the foundations of understanding to build an Integral Development Plan that promotes development and opportunities in the region, contributing to the prevention of the migratory phenomenon and simultaneously attacking its structural causes”. The application of the Sembrando Vida program in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador will be able to immediately retain 90,000 people in their countries and thus reduce migratory flows by planting 500,000 hectares and employing nearly a quarter-million people, through technical support, training, economic support and supplies to farmers to improve their plots.
