President Laurentino Cortizo said that Panama respects Mexico and demands from President Andrés Manuel López Obrador the same respect for our country.

Cortizo’s reaction arises after AMLO’s expressions, after Foreign Minister Erika Mouynes announced that the nomination of historian Pedro Salmerón, accused of sexual harassment, was not accepted. Mexico later proposed the controversy to former senator Laura María de Jesús Rodríguez, married to an Argentine artist.

“It turns out that we proposed (Salmerón) for Ambassador to Panama and, as if it were the Holy Inquisition, the minister or Chancellor of Panama” got upset, López Obrador said.

Cortizo supported Foreign Minister Mouynes and said that just as the Mexican State has the right to appoint whoever it wishes, Panama can also decide whether to accept it or not. “The Foreign Minister of Panama is a great professional, she has my full support and respect.” , reiterated the ruler.

During a Community Work Tour in Colón, in which he delivered benefits of $5.4 million, he stated that they have very good diplomatic relations with Mexico and considers that, as well as President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, he has the right to appoint an ambassador, of the same form Panama is sovereign to decide whether or not to accept the diplomat.

“The president of Mexico has the right to designate whoever he likes, but Panama is sovereign to decide who he says yes to and who he says no to,” said Cortizo Cohen. He added that he has had good experiences working with Mexican diplomats of high professional quality.

“The decision of the president of Mexico is his decision; we decide whether or not to accept an ambassador, just as they decided to accept ours, that he is a very good ambassador, that is very important”.
