Mexico won’t be part of sanctions towards Russia

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says that Mexico won’t be taking part in the international pile on to sanction Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.

The Mexican President told reporters, “We are not going to take any part of economic retaliation because we want to maintain good relations with all the governments of the world”. He further added that remaining neutral will put Mexico in a position to “talk with the parties in the conflict”.

The Mexican leader’s position on the Ukraine crisis marks a novel diplomatic strategy as other nations around the world including former Warsaw Pact nations such as Bulgaria and Romania, join the US in trying to punish Russia.

Mexico aims to maintain economic ties with Russia and Moscow’s Latin American allies. This year Russia’s Lukoil bought into an offshore oil project in Mexico, and López Obrador said that his country will keep its airspace open for Aeroflot’s flights to Mexico City.

Lopez Obrador said, “I don’t agree with the fact that media from Russia or any country is censored”. This comes after he criticized the censorship of Russian media outlets including RT, by government and social media companies.
