Ambassador Wayne Praises Mexico’s Efforts to Prevent the Spread of Nuclear Weapons and Technology

Mexico City, June 25, 2012 -- U.S. Ambassador Anthony Wayne praised Mexico’s admission into the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) as an Observer State.

Ambassador Wayne said this move “is representative of the great strides that the Government of Mexico has made in bringing its strategic trade control system into compliance with international standards, and its determination to participate in the global effort to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and technology.  We anticipate that as an Observer State, Mexico will continue to evolve its strategic trade management practices in its endeavor to seek full NSG membership.  The United States of America congratulates Mexico on its achievements in this area.”
