MEXICO’s new President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (popularly known as Amlo) has backed “eternal friend,” Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, to become Britain’s next prime minister at a gathering in Chiapas, southern Mexico.
In a video message in which he appeared alongside Mr Corbyn and Cuban singer Silvio Rodriguez, Amlo said Mexico has a “very good relationship with the planet’s progressive movements.”
“We have a very good relationship with the United Kingdom labour movement. We identify with each other because progressive governments, democratic governments respect migrants and respect the right that all human beings have to seek a better life. That’s the principle of human rights,” he said.
“Those from Latin America, the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, are our brothers and now the British people will have the opportunity — I hope, I want it with all my heart, with all my soul — to have a prime minister like Corbyn.”
In a statement, the Labour Party said Amlo “faces huge challenges in his mission of transforming Mexico, but Jeremy hopes his election will offer Mexico’s poor and powerless a real voice and a break with the failures and injustices of the past.”
