Mexican Government Grants Agrément for Future U.S. Ambassador

Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs

The Foreign Ministry reports that during a telephone conversation on February 17, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson informed Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray that Roberta Jacobson had submitted her resignation as U.S. ambassador to Mexico and that he would soon ask the Mexican government to grant its consent for the appointment of a new ambassador.

The agrément was officially requested on Tuesday, February 20, and on Monday, February 26 the Foreign Ministry notified the U.S. State Department that it would grant its approval for the appointment.

It is the responsibility of the U.S. government alone to inform the public about who has been appointed to head its embassy in Mexico.

The Foreign Ministry appreciates Ambassador Jacobson's committed and responsible diplomacy as ambassador, not only in Mexico but also for the benefit of the entire region.  It also thanks her for her outstanding work in building a frank and open relationship between the governments and societies of Mexico and the United States. The Foreign Ministry wishes her every success with her new professional challenges.
