President Calderon announced that the U.S. and Mexico will not participate in joint anti-drug raids to reduce violence along the border region. He called for greater cooperation between thetwo governments. Calderon said that he wants the U.S. to share their intelligence information on the drug cartels and offer help to Mexican agencies, like offering high-tech surveillance. “It is true that we have a problem with violence and crime that we must fight against. it is also something that President Obama recognizes as a problem that both our countries must fight together,” President Calderon stated.
