Lopez Obrador will respect ongoing NAFTA talks


The landslide winner of Mexico’s presidential election, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, said on Monday July 2, that he will aim to keep Mexico in the NAFTA trade pact and seek a frank dialogue and friendly ties with the United States.

The first leftist president elected in Mexico’s modern history said in his first post-election interview after Sunday’s vote that he will also stick with the pick for finance minister he named during the campaign.
