WASHINGTON — On Thursday May 5, US President Barack Obama spoke by telephone with his Mexican counterpart, Enrique Peña Nieto, to wish him and all Mexicans a happy Cinco de Mayo and discuss bilateral cooperation.
“A while ago I had a chance to speak with President Peña Nieto on our shared work to enhance the prosperity of both Americans and Mexicans,” Obama said during the annual reception at the White House to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
“He wished me a happy Cinco de Mayo and he asked me to wish the same to you,” he added, referring to the dozens of people who attended the reception.
At the reception, the US president shouted “!Viva México!” and listened to a concert by the Mexican rock band Maná.
Millions of Americans celebrate every year on May 5, which commemorates the victory of Mexican troops in the region of Puebla over Napoleon’s invading army, despite being fewer in number, poorly armed and with little training.
Obama and Peña Nieto are scheduled to meet June 29 in Ottawa, Canada, during the North American Leaders Summit hosted by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
