Russian FM Says Speculation about Interference in Mexican Election Unfounded

MOSCOW – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov dismissed on Friday speculation over possible interference by his country in next year’s Mexican presidential election as unfounded.

Lavrov made his comments to the press after talks with his Mexican counterpart, Luis Videgaray Caso, in the Russia capital.

The Russian diplomat said of such “rumors” that he could “only confirm that it is mere speculation, which has no foundation and seems to be aimed at creating irritants in relations between Russia and Mexico.”

Videgaray said his government had no evidence to validate claims about Moscow’s supposed interest in influencing the results of the upcoming poll.

He also quipped that the Mexican government had no intention of interfering in Russia’s elections.

Lavrov said the sources of the misinformation were in the United States and that it was intended to damage Russian-Mexican relations, which “have been particularly steady and positive.”

Mexico is set to hold a presidential election in July 2018.
