THE POSITION OF THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT ON MEDIA REPORTS OF ALLEGED ACTIVITIES OF THE U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY
The Foreign Ministry has taken note of the international media reports of alleged espionage activity involving Mexican citizens as part of the programs of the National Security Agency of the United States (NSA).
Without prejudging the accuracy of the information contained in the reports, the Mexican Government categorically rejects and condemns any efforts to spy on Mexican citizens in violation of international law. This type of practice is contrary to the United Nations Charter and to the jurisprudence of the International Court of Justice.
Given the above, the Government of Mexico has asked the U.S. government, by diplomatic note, for a thorough investigation and, as applicable, to determine the corresponding responsibilities.
Mexico's Foreign Ministry has summoned the U.S. ambassador to express its strong concern and to demand the aforementioned investigation.
