.- The Secretary General of the Mexican Bishops Conference made a call on behalf of the Mexican episcopate for peace to prevail in the United States.

In a tweet from his official account, Bishop Alfonso Miranda Guardiola said that the Mexican bishops “regret the events and the deaths occurred at the United States Capitol," and added that “democracy and the rule of law need to prevail over the acts of violence.”

“To the dead and infected by the pandemic, let's not add more victims of riots, insurrections and wars,” he said.

Mexican media has been heavily covering the events at the US Capitol and the rocky transition of power from President Donald Trump to President-elect Joe Biden. With a heavy dependency on the U.S. economy and international politics, events in America have become regular top news in the country for the last two months.
