Nevada attorney general meeting with Mexican counterpart

Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto will join seven other Western Attorneys General* this week in Mexico to meet with Mexican Attorney General Eduardo Medina Mora.

The meeting between the delegation from the Conference of Western Attorneys General and the Mexican Conference of Attorney Generals will be held on

Friday and is intended to open a *Binational Dialogue* between the two countries on important issues including methamphetamine interdiction and human trafficking.

"Opening this dialogue between the United States and Mexico is very

important for our country and for Nevadans," said Masto. "Most of the methamphetamine that is illegally distributed in Nevada is manufactured in so-called 'super labs' in Mexico so it is imperative for me to sit down with Mexican law enforcement to discuss ways to keep this drug from ever crossing the border."

Attorney General Masto and the other Attorneys General will arrive in Mexico Wednesday.

Prior to Friday*s meeting with the Mexican Attorney Generals, the group will spend Thursday touring the state of Morelos and visiting its surrounding areas.
