Obama: ‘Mexico Is a Critical Partner’ on a Whole Host of Issues Like Climate Change
"On a whole host of issues, from our shared security, to climate change, Mexico is a critical partner, and is critically important to our own well-being. We are not just strategic and economic partners. We are also neighbors, and we're friends, and we're family — including millions of Americans that are tied to Mexico by culture and by language. And that's why as president, I worked to deepen the partnership between our nations."
