RIAC Holds a Roundtable "Russia-Mexico: 125 Years of Partnership"


On April 14, 2015, Russian International Affairs Council held the roundtable "Russia-Mexico: 125 Years of Partnership" at Russia Today international multimedia press center. This year Russia and Mexico celebrate the 125th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations, while changes in the world order require the traditional cooperation pattern to be augmented by infusion of fresh content. Moscow and Mexico City share the desire to make the system of international relations more democratic, open and just, and are interested in strengthening security and stability in Asia-Pacific. At the same time, the two countries differ on some issues, including Ukraine. However, common challenges in economic development, migration and countering drug trade may become a solid basis for bilateral cooperation. As country staying away from anti-Russian sanctions, Mexico may become the inlet to the Latin American market through the Pacific Alliance and to the North American market through the NAFTA.
