The US ambassador to Mexico, Ken Salazar, has asked the Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador government to allow the return and operation of agents of the Drug Control Administration (DEA, for short) in Mexico.
The call comes a day after a high-level security dialogue between the US delegation led by Secretary of State Anthony Blanken and President Lopez Obrador and members of his cabinet.
Last year, the federal government suspended the criminal immunity granted to foreign agents and imposed strict restrictions on operations on national soil.
The sanctions ordered by the federal executive include a clear ban on arrests, as well as the transfer of information about their actions to competent Mexican authorities.
Mexico currently hosts DEA agents, so appeal
