Cooperation Yes, Submission No

U.S. intelligence agencies will no longer command or violate our sovereignty, nor will they undermine Mexico’s sovereignty and politics, and we will no longer be the target of Pentagon espionage.

The president has recently stated his position on U.S. intelligence agencies’ meddling in Mexican domestic politics, as well as American interference and disruption in our country. It’s not the first time the U.S. has intervened; it did so during the so-called Guacamaya Leaks, which revealed hacked files from Sedena, Mexico’s Defense Ministry, and when U.S. intelligence agencies infiltrated the Gulf Cartel following the kidnapping of four Americans in Matamoros, Tamaulipas.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador accused the Pentagon of spying on his government, specifically the Ministries of the Navy and National Defense, and of leaking the information to the U.S. media, which in turn leaked it to Mexico’s corrupt press, which has received information from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Agency.

For López Obrador, it’s important to safeguard our information in the interest of national security, and accordingly, he has decided to protect the data of the Secretariat of the Navy (Semar) and the National Defense Ministry (Sedena) from Pentagon espionage, a decision based on a U.S. military report that contained information from Mexican military records.

Mexico has to defend its sovereignty, and shielding armed forces data does not violate the right to transparency. Furthermore, decree is not needed to make this provision, as the law allows Mexico to withhold information related to national security.

Mexico does not engage in espionage as it used to, but it cannot make it easy for those who are doing so.

“Our country does not spy, and it will not allow others to violate our sovereignty in an interventionist plan that uses the sold-out press and conservative vested interest groups as an instrument, the corrupt who want to return to their old ways and continue stealing; it’s a fact that the group headed by businessman Claudio X. González receives funding from the U.S government,” López Obrador said.

U.S. security agencies will no longer command or violate our sovereignty, nor will they undermine Mexico’s sovereignty and politics, and we will no longer be the target of Pentagon espionage.

A Pentagon spokesperson told the EFE news agency that the U.S. Department of Defense and the Mexican Ministry of National Defense (Sedena) and Navy (Semar) “enjoy a collaborative partnership” focused on “traditional defense issues.”

President López Obrador has distanced himself from his U.S. counterpart Joe Biden, as he is aware “that he has been very respectful, but there is also a political crisis in the United States.”

What is certain is that Washington’s abusive meddling and attempts to interfere under the pretext of fighting crime have come to an end.

As Mexicans, we will not allow any foreign military force to cross our borders; they cannot continue to apply a policy that is two centuries old, and Mexico’s security comes before cooperation with the U.S. Subordination to the U.S. is a hindrance and part of a long-standing bad habit, as the government of the Fourth Transformation contends.

López Obrador must review how U.S. agencies function if the countries are to create a new policy.

Get your house in order! The U.S has serious problems to resolve. Today, we have a courageous president, a statesman who defends Mexico’s interests and looks out for current and future generations.
