She also met with Ben Cardin, the Democratic senator, with whom she discussed several matters such as the bilateral relation between the two countries and regional foreign affairs.

During both these meetings, the Minister emphasized the importance of NAFTA and the benefits it means for both countries.

Susan Elizabeth Rice, the U.S. National Security Advisor, also met with Ms. Ruiz Massieu, at which time they discussed key matters such as the bilateral relationship, regional competitiveness, security and migration.

The state officials drew attention to the importance of continuing to strengthen bilateral cooperative mechanisms in order to work together towards tackling shared challenges.

In recent months, the Foreign Minister has launched several campaigns in the U.S. through Mexico’s embassies and consulates aimed at protecting the rights of Mexicans living in the U.S.
