Mexican President Enrique PeÃ±a Nieto is expected to visit Belize sometime this month to celebrate 35 years of friendship between Belize and Mexico. The Mexican Ambassador to Belize referenced it in a speech he gave at Belize's observance of the 207th anniversary of Mexico's Independence from Spain, which is celebrated every September 15.
He told a gathering, which included the Head of State, the Head of Government, and other invited guests that the President's visit would be a reinforcement of the very friendly bilateral relations between Belize and Mexico. Here's what he had to say in that speech from 3 weeks ago:
