Voices of Mexico no. 34

Our Voice

October's meeting in Washington between presidents Ernesto Zedillo of Mexico and Bill Clinton of the United States was an undoubted success. A team spirit characterized the speeches and meetings, talks with political and economic leaders, as well as those invited to the ceremonies and perceptions on the part of the mass media. This is one more demonstration of the fact that relations between our two countries have reached a level of maturity beneficial to both. We have learned to be friends, both in times of euphoria and during periods of redefinition.
In Mexico and the United States, we finally recognize our differences while respecting the grandeur of our identities. We know that the world has entered an era of globalization, when it behooves us to find mutual windows of opportunity at the same time as we understand, and are prepared to discuss, our disagreements. There is a consciousness that the problems confronting us today go beyond borders and therefore demand a search for joint solutions.
