Mexico City Council delegation meets with President of Mayors for Peace
January 16, 2020
On January 16, a delegation from the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Congress of Mexico City, led by Deputy Jannete Elizabeth Guerrero Maya (President of the Commitee) met with Mayor Kazumi Matsui of Hiroshima City (President of Mayors for Peace) at the embassy of Mexico in Tokyo.
Deputy Guerrero personally handed Mayor Matsui a letter of invitation to an event in Mexico City in February commemorating the 53rd anniversary of the signing of the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean, known as the Treaty of Tlatelolco.
At the meeting, Mayor Matsui conveyed his respect to Mexico for its leadership in nuclear disarmament, including the country’s swift signing and ratification of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. He also thanked Mexico City for its ongoing support for Mayors for Peace as a Vice President and the Lead City of Mexico. Mayor Matsui asked Deputy Guerrero for her support in membership expansion in Mexico, especially expressing his hope for the mayors of the 16 distinct cities of the federal district of Mexico City to join Mayors for Peace in their own right, and she reaffirmed Mexico City’s support in this regard.
Further reports will follow on the commemorative event from February 13 to 14, where a video message from the President of Mayors for Peace will be presented.
