Democracy and freedom are at the heart of the UK's values and FCDO global policy. They contribute to long-term prosperity and security; and democratic societies are the strongest supporters of an open and resilient international order. This policy has not been impacted by recent demonstrations in Mexico. Support for democratic principles in Mexico is a continuing priority for our Embassy, which regularly engages with the Mexican Government to underline the importance of strong institutions and free and fair elections.
