In a resolute show of determination, Mexico's Foreign Minister, Alicia Bárcena, has reaffirmed the country's unwavering commitment to its trade agreement with the European Union (EU). Despite facing numerous obstacles, Mexico remains steadfast in its pursuit of signing the modernized trade agreement with the EU.
However, amidst this pledge, the nation is grappling with escalating violence instigated by organized crime along the Tamaulipas border. Yesterday, yet another heinous attack occurred when police officers, traveling along the San Fernando exit, were mercilessly ambushed. This incident follows the tragic loss of two state agents in Reynosa, who were killed in a rollover resulting from an ambush. Disturbingly, this attack took place just hours after the National Guard (NG) and the Army engaged in a shootout, eliminating five armed assailants in the nearby municipality of Rio Bravo.
Meanwhile, authorities have successfully apprehended two individuals, Sergio Julián "N" and Samuel "N," in connection with an ambush involving explosives in Tlajomulco. This brazen attack claimed the lives of six people and left 15 others injured. The swift arrest of these suspects brings a glimmer of hope to those affected by this senseless act of violence.
