AMLO lamented the attack on the LeBaron family
During his morning conference on Tuesday, the federal president addressed the case of the attack on the LeBaron family, which left three women and six children dead, as well as six injured children.
I send condolences, a hug to the whole family and to the families of the victims. It is an unfortunate misfortune, because innocent children lose their lives, what is going to be done, it is our obligation to stop the guilty and there will be justice, ”said Lopez Obrador.
While the dialogue with the media was going on, the president of the United States wrote on Twitter about the attack and offered his help to end the "monsters" in reference to drug traffickers, if Mexico asked for it.
A wonderful family and friends from Utah were caught between two vicious drug cartels, which shot at each other. Many Americans were killed, including small and some missing. ”
If Mexico needs or requests help to clean up these monsters, the United States is ready, willing and able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively (…) the posters have become so large and powerful that sometimes an army is needed to defeat an army, ”Trump wrote.
However, Lopez Obrador said that his administration is not in favor of "that way of thinking", because war is not part of his convictions.
In that we do not agree. Of course, those who have that way of thinking, they are respected, but it does not agree with our convictions, the worst thing there can be is war, ”said the federal president.
Those who have suffered a war know what that means, it is also the opposite of politics; I said that politics was invented to avoid war. War is synonymous with irrationality. We are for peace and that is a characteristic of this government, ”he emphasized.
The federal president said that facing belligerently the criminal groups did not work in other administrations and those who set that strategy in motion should make “flat” in which they repeat the phrase 100 times: “we declared war and it did not work. We mourn the people of Mexico. ”
It is not an option, that strategy failed, we will not give in to that. Imagine putting on a vest and (say) let's go to raze, to slaughter, to give the order as they did. ”
Lopez Obrador thanked the support offered by the US president, but stressed that addressing violence is the responsibility of Mexico.
In relations between Mexico and the United States there is cooperation; however, it is an issue that belongs to us, to the Mexican government, independently, and asserting our sovereignty. We thank President Trump and any government that wants to cooperate, ”he said.
During the conference he urged to wait for investigations and not to advance hypotheses or conjecture.
