Top oil hall says Mexico abusing both new and old international alliances
The top oil hall in the United States has indeed kept in touch with the U.S. government to request that it ask the Mexican government to maintain its economic alliance responsibilities to treat American oil area financial backers and exporters reasonably.

Mike Sommers noticed that he kept in touch with the past United States government last June to layout “unfair activities” taken by the Mexican government against U.S. oil organizations.
“Be that as it may, as of late President López Obrador has expanded such activities — in both degree and seriousness — to change the essentials of the energy area in Mexico,” he wrote in the letter routed to U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm, Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo and U.S. Exchange Representative Katherine Tai.
“President Lopez Obrador has initiated significant revisions to two laws — the Power Industry Law and the Hydrocarbons Law — to change market decides for Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) and the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) and against privately owned businesses,” the API boss composed.

“… We urge you to keep connecting carefully with President López Obrador and your cupboard level partners in Mexico’s offices to encourage the Government of Mexico to maintain its USMCA responsibilities to treat U.S. financial backers and U.S. exporters genuinely,” the letter said. “Furthermore, we ask that you incorporate these infringement as a top conversation thing for the impending Free Trade Commission meeting that Ambassador Tai and Mexican Secretary of Economy Tatiana Clouthier consented to when they talked in March.”
Gabriela Siller, head of monetary and monetary examination at Mexican monetary gathering Banco Base, said that the grumblings shouldn’t be belittled on the grounds that the United States could react by setting levies on Mexican items.
