Mexico City, November 8 (RHC)-- In Mexico, the future Minister of Public Security (SSP) Alfonso Durazo has announced that the security plan for the next government led by Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), will be revealed on November 14th.  Durazo highlighted that the security budget will remain the same in 2019, however, and that the country will not acquire more arms, but will instead, use the money to strengthen training and skills for security forces.

"The Mexican state has sufficient technological capacity and sufficient armament capacity, so there will be no purchases," stated Durazo outside of the "transition house," where president-elect AMLO met with the future ministers of the National Defense Ministry (Sedena) Luis Cresencio Sandoval, Navy Secretary Rafael Ojeda, Gobernation Ministry Olga Sanchez Cordero and the Sedena ministry Alfonso Durazo, to discuss the security plan for the new MORENA government that will be sworn-in on December 1st.

Mexico’s president-elect AMLO is also expected to review security agreements with the United States, including the $2.9 billion Merida initiative, a direct U.S. aid program to fight organized crime and drug trafficking in Mexico and Central America.
