“I am very impressed by the government’s determination to invest in the poorest people, especially those who work in the informal economy,” Corbyn said on Monday.
The British politician, who led the Labor Party from 2015 to 2020, is visiting Mexico, the country he visits frequently since his wife, Laura Alvarez, is Mexican.
Corbyn also noted the problems facing the country, but made it clear that he was very “impressed” by the changes he had seen.
The former leader of the British opposition continued: “Mexico faces many problems, the most serious of which are the inequality in the living standards of the population and the poverty of many people in certain regions.”
Friendship between politicians goes back a long time.
In 2017, Corbin Lopez Obrador, then an opponent, called a session of the English Parliament.
Years later, in 2018, Mexican President Corbyn invited to his ranch in Palenque, in Chiapas, for his later inauguration.
Corbin also endorsed Lopez Obrador’s daily press conferences on Monday, known as “Mananeras,” which he described as “impressive.”
The former Labor leader concluded that “(the president) shows a level of presidential openness that does not exist in many countries and must be recognized.”
