MEXICO CITY, Mexico.- The President-elect of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, said he will not withdraw the invitation to the head of State of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, to the ceremony of inauguration, on December 1st.

Since Lopez Obrador announced that President Maduro was among those attending his inauguration, he has received a series of criticisms from both Mexican and Venezuelan opposition sectors.

The next president of Mexico in a statement he reaffirmed last Saturday, ratified that his administration will maintain a policy of friendship with all the governments and peoples of the world.

We have no reason to be involved in matters that do not correspond to us. The best is neutrality. We’ll respect self-determination, non-intervention, peaceful dispute resolution, cooperation for development and we want friendship with everyone, the leftist Mexican politician said.
