Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken embarked on his first virtual trip, "visiting" Mexico and Canada on February 26, 2021.
The United States and Mexico enjoy a strong partnership, and this trip reinforces the importance of that relationship under the Biden Administration. During his trip to Mexico, Secretary Blinken met with Secretary of Foreign Affairs Marcelo Ebrard and Secretary of Economy Tatiana Clouthier. He spoke with his Mexican counterparts about our bilateral trade relationship, shared security challenges, regional migration, climate change, and other issues of mutual interest. Secretary Blinken also conducted a virtual visit to the Paso Del Norte port of entry — which links El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
