The Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, visited the state of Guerrero for the first time and advocated to overcome the “pain” that generated the presumed slaughter of 43 students in September, and to revive tourism in Acapulco, hit by protests.
“The Government of the Republic, together with the state government, are in close coordination to really overcome this stage of pain, take a step forward and be willing to build a better environment,” the president said at a public event in the municipality of Coyuca.
The disappearance of the youths, who were attacked by police and drug traffickers the night of September 26 in Iguala (Guerrero), “will generate a milestone, will mark a moment and will allow building better institutions,” he said.
In other act in Acapulco, Peña Nieto defended the questioned actions of his government before the crime of the students, one of the worst in the recent history of Latin America.
In the exhibition center where Peña Nieto was, there was a large deployment of the federal police and gendarmes in the surroundings where no major protests were recorded.
