The government of the president Enrique Peña Nieto starkly abandoned its traditional foreign policy doctrine Estrada after announcing its collaboration with the US government in its announced sanctions against Venezuela, reported Prensa Latina.
Mexican Undersecretary of Finance, Vanessa Rubio, said the administration of Peña Nieto will provide financial and tax information about current and former Venezuelan officials against whom Washington has issued sanctions.
Such punishments include the revocation of visas and the freezing of funds and assets, a policy with which the Mexican government is committed in spite of the diplomacy of respect for the sovereignty of third countries that for decades has earned it international recognition.
Rubio argued that the decision corresponds to agreements of bilateral and multilateral cooperation to detect possible unlawful acts. However, many are questioning here whether the measure corresponds to the revelations of the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Mike Pompeo, who acknowledged that he met with senior officials from Mexico and Colombia to coordinate actions against the government of President Nicolás Maduro.
The undersecretary of the Treasury indicated that the Financial Intelligence Unit of that Federal agency will look in its database for information that is useful for the administration of President Donald Trump.
She acknowledged that talks have already been held with the US Treasury Department to activate the mechanisms of delivery of information against the government of Caracas, which makes more credible the allegations of President Maduro regarding the anti-Venezuelan conspiracy between the CIA and the administration of Peña Nieto.
Earlier, a joint communiqué was issued by the Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Finance indicating that the Peña Nieto administration will proceed 'in consequence' of the sanctions announced by the United States against Venezuela. The text of two paragraphs, and local media described as confusing, used the same language of the White House to justify punishments against senior Venezuelan government officials.
According to the official communiqué, Mexico assumes as its own the qualifiers of Washington that officials and former officials of Venezuela were sanctioned by the government of Donald Trump 'for having undermined democracy and human rights in that country, as well as for their participation in acts of violence, repression and corruption.'
Regarding sanctions: 'The Mexican government, through the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit, reports that it will proceed accordingly, in accordance with the laws and conventions applicable in the matter,' the text adds.
This is another escalation in the Mexican position against the Bolivarian government, now showing itself openly in its complicity with Washington. Mexico throws aside its historical doctrine Estrada, by which its foreign policy reaped sympathy and international recognition for the respect to the sovereignty and self-determination of third countries.
Now the Mexican authorities assume as their own the disqualifications of the administration of Donald Trump against the legitimate Venezuelan government that has denounced being attacked by foreign interests in collusion with the right-wing and economic power groups of the South American nation.
Mexico has put aside those who appeal again to the coup against the Bolivarian government, which has already faced a similar case in the life of President Hugo Chavez, whose birth was remembered here in the Venezuelan diplomatic mission with social organizations and Mexican political representatives.
To better illustrate it: the Mexican Ministry of Finance investigates the minister of Culture of Venezuela, Elías Jaua, one of the 13 sanctioned by Washington, by orders of the United States. Jaua was Vice President, Foreign Minister and Speaker of Venezuela's Parliament, with which Mexico maintains diplomatic relations that must be governed by principles today violated as commanded by White House.
In this scenario, the chapter of the Network of Intellectuals, Artists and Social Movements in Defense of Humanity considered the interference of the government of President Enrique Peña Nieto in Venezuelan internal affairs as an unacceptable submission. A document signed by intellectuals and scholars network members opined that the actions of the administration of Peña Nieto against Venezuela does not represent the sentiment of the Mexican people.
The call rejects the decision announced by the Mexican Foreign Ministry and of Treasury to join the sanctions of the government of Donald Trump against officials of the Venezuelan government. It emphasizes that the submission levels has exceeded the limits of rationality, degrading the dignity that any country must raise and violating the Mexican tradition with respect to the sovereignty of other nations.
