President López Obrador specified that a few days ago he said he was in favor of any measure that “would let us live in peace,” this in reference to the pact made by a group with criminal organizations to stop violence.
“What I said is that I was in favor of any measure that would allow us to live in peace. The question (regarding his opinion regarding the pact) always seemed biased to me, but I couldn’t say “note that we don’t want any agreement with crime” as the other presidents said “my hand is not going to tremble, we are going to defeat them” . No way to say, we do not have an agreement nor do we want to have them with those who of their own free will decide to act responsibly and humanely.

He said that Tamaulipas currently looks “much better” in terms of security than in the previous administration.
