Bilateral meeting at FGR on fentanyl

The head of the Attorney General’s Office (FGR), Alejandro Gertz, met yesterday with United States authorities, with whom he discussed bilateral cooperation in the fight against fentanyl trafficking.

The meeting was held at the FGR headquarters and was attended by the United States Ambassador to Mexico, Ken Salazar, and Liz Sherwood-Randall, White House National Security Advisor.

It was the US ambassador who announced the meeting via Twitter. Salazar said that the meeting was “to improve security cooperation and fight against the scourge of fentanyl, to better protect our two nations,” the message was accompanied by a photo of the event.

The meeting came a few hours after the kidnapping of four US citizens in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, on March 3, two of whom were killed and two rescued alive.

According to the Tamaulipas authorities, the kidnapping was a confusion on the part of the criminals (who thought the Americans were human traffickers) and added that the incident occurred in an area dominated by the Gulf cartel.

The FGR did not make any pronouncement related to the meeting of the head of the agency with US authorities.
