Earlier in the attack unknown in Northern Mexico killed three women and nine children.
US President Donald Trump on Tuesday expressed his readiness to assist the Mexican authorities in the fight against drug cartels operating in the country. He made the statement after an attack on a group of Mormons in Northern Mexico, which killed 12 people.
According to the newspaper El Universal, on November 5, an attack by unknown people in Northern Mexico killed three women and nine children, five minors were missing.
“If Mexico needs help in destroying these monsters, then the United States is ready, willing and able to help do it quickly and efficiently,” Trump wrote on his Twitter page. “The great new President of Mexico [Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador] has taken this issue seriously, but cartels are getting bigger and more powerful to the point that sometimes it takes an army to defeat an army of drug traffickers.”
Trump also added that he expects a call from Obrador to discuss the situation. “It is time for the Mexican authorities, with the help of the United States, to wage war against drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth,” the White House chief added.
In turn, the Mexican President commenting on Trump’s proposal to promote the fight against drug traffickers said that Mexico does not need foreign assistance in such cases.
From January to September this year, almost 26 thousand people became victims of violence in the Latin American country. The drug mafia is responsible for the deaths of thousands of people. In early September, President Obrador called improving security in Mexico his top priority.
