March 21.- The accusations of human rights abuse and corruption in Mexico found in the most recent report of the State Department of Joe Biden’s administration are lies and politicking, as stated by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, during Tuesday’s morning conference in Oaxaca.

The president said that the institution’s Annual Report on Human Rights is part of the nature of the North American country, which refuses to abandon the Monroe Doctrine and Manifest Destiny, which sought to give power to the nation through the protection of its domestic policy, as well as the belief that this country was chosen to demonstrate its power and expand.

“They see the speck in someone else’s eye and not the log in their own.”

He assured that the situation does not bother him, due to the fact that he knows the nature of U.S. institutions, which use the political juncture to look for problems in other territories and evade their responsibilities.

“They think they are the government of the world,” he said.

“Nothing more to say that is not true, that they are liars,” he added.

He accused the U.S. conservative political class of being the source of this investigation, with which, he assured, they seek to destabilize his government before the population in order to tilt the balance in favor of different interests.

Trump is the victim of a campaign against him

He asked not to take this statement wrongly, because it is not malicious and asked to think about what would happen if his government also made such statements against the United States. The president even said that he could criticize for not releasing activist Julian Assange, head of WikiLeaks, one of the main sources of information leaks from the U.S. administration.

He added that he could also criticize Biden’s nation for allowing the operation of drug cartels, the arrival of narcotics across the border, the consumption of fentanyl or the alleged persecution against Donald Trump so that he does not appear on the ballot.

“They campaign and manipulate a lot. None of that works here anymore. Here the people are very aware, very smart,” he said.

He maintains collaboration with the United States

He indicated that these statements are not a rupture in the relationship he has with the Democrat’s administration, since the collaboration between both countries continues to eradicate the arrival of fentanyl and reinforce border security.

López Obrador highlighted that in the meeting he will have with John Kerry in Guelatao during this Tuesday afternoon he will talk about the energy cooperation between the two nations and also about some issues that have a resolution pending.

“We have no differences with the American people, nor do we have differences with President Biden,” he said.
