Biden will meet with Lopez Obrador after summit cancellation due to border 'lack of control'

(MENAFN) Next month, US President Joe Biden will meet with his Mexican counterpart, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

On Tuesday, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard confirmed on Twitter that the two presidents will meet in Washington on July 12.

He stated that the agenda for the meeting had already been agreed upon with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the White House staff.

The subject of migration will be at the top of the agenda.

Lopez Obrador made headlines last month when he refused to attend the US-led Summit of the Americas.

The Mexican president backed out of the gathering when the White House declined to invite Cuban and Nicaraguan officials, as well as Venezuelan delegates, to the Summit of the Americas.

Obrador lambasted Washington's antiquated foreign strategy of excluding leftist countries, emphasizing that the White House must abandon its goal to control the world for no good reason. “There can be no Summit of the Americas if all the countries of the American continent do not participate,” Lopez Obrador declared in May. “Or there can be, but we believe that means continuing of old politics of interventionism, of a lack of respect of their communities.”
