Assistant Secretary for International Organizations, Esther Brimmer, hosted a roundtable at the Benjamin Franklin Library in Mexico City this morning to discuss multilateralism and Mexico. A/S Brimmer offered an overview of the U.S. multilateral agenda, opening the discussion by commenting: “Many of the important issues are cross border, a fact that is evident in U.S.-Mexico relations. So it’s critical to work together. The U.S. welcomes an increasing Mexican voice on global issues. The international system benefits from responsible stakeholders like Mexico.“ Mexicans from think tanks and international organizations provided frank views on the challenges and opportunities for Mexico’s multilateral agenda as part of a productive discussion. Topics included arms control, peacekeeping, , poverty reduction, hunger alleviation, press freedom and migration.
