Statement from Mexican President

February 24, 2012

“The eyes of the world are today focused on Mexico.

We know from our experience in Guerrero over the past three years that
there are limits to what cann be done to prevent violence — the 2009 gun
battle with the cartel there made that clear. Nevertheless, I believe
that it is important that we increase the visible security presence in the
resort areas and you should coordinate activities with the police. We
cannot afford a renewed drop in tourism like that which accompanied
reports of the beheadings in Acapulco.

Finally, you must underscore in any public statements our solidarity with
our brothers to the North who have suffered today as well. These
incidents only reinforce the correctness of the efforts that we have
initiated together in Merida.”

Felipe de Jesús Calderón Hinojosa
