The new U.S. Consul General in Tijuana, Tom Reott, held a meeting with the Consul General of Mexico in San Diego, Diego Carlos González Gutiérrez, with the objective of strengthening relations on both sides of the border.
This was published on the Facebook page of the Consulate General of the United States in Tijuana, through which they shared a photo of the diplomats where the city of San Diego can be seen in the background. They also shared the following:
In the first of many meetings to come, the consuls of the Calibaja region highlighted their commitment to cooperate, work together and strengthen relations between Mexico and the United States in order to address priority issues in the Tijuana-San Diego region.
Among the priority issues could be the future reopening of the border, which is about to reach the one and a half year mark since it was closed to Mexicans with tourist visas who used to cross into the United States for non-essential reasons.
Regarding this, this morning, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard shared that the closure is not expected to continue until 2022 since commercial activities in the border region are being affected, so it could be that before 2022 the restrictions will begin to be lifted.
