Mexico president hosts US AG behind closed doors in capital

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s president and the U.S. attorney general have met behind closed doors about a week after U.S. President Donald Trump suggested his government could classify Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador tweeted a photo of himself conversing with William Barr on Thursday in Mexico City. Lopez Obrador said that “as a lawyer, (Barr) understands that our Constitution obliges us to stick to principles of cooperation for development and non-intervention in foreign policy.” Lopez Obrador said earlier that he would be accompanied by his security cabinet and Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard. The encounter was not open to journalists.
