We are clear that reducing crime and improving security in Mexico is important. The British Embassy in Mexico City regularly engages with Mexican authorities and civil society on this, including monitoring violence trends in the country and offering assistance in the field of rule of law. We will continue to engage with the Mexican Government, including any newly appointed ministers, to address security concerns and combat crime in Mexico.
