The INCB (International Narcotics Control Board) has published a document, which suggests that the eventual construction of the wall on the border between Mexico and the United States would not solve the problem of drug trafficking, in fact, the INCB notes that the Mexican drug cartels operating a turnover of about $ 3.2 billion annually and that take advantage of very technological means such as drones or remote controlled submarines to carry the loads of drugs across the border, considering that according to data of the Secretariat for the National Defense there are today at least 60 airstrips not registered only in the Baja California region.
Luis Videgaray, Mexican Foreign Minister, met informally the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Bonn, Germans, where both are attending the G20. Videgaray said that Mexico will not change his mind about the financing of the wall on the border between the US and Mexico that the US President Trump wants to build, however, also stated that the US has every right to defend their borders and on this issue Mexico is willing to talk, finally he hinted that other Ministers of foreign Affairs are pushing so that the two countries work together as much as possible.
President Trump, from his residence in Florida, has admitted that the calculations, made earlier by his staff during the election campaign and then his by Cabinet, about the costs of the border wall that he would like to build with Mexico have been wrong, the work should costing $ 21.6 billion against $ 12 billion, which is the amount that Trump had declared during the election campaign. The President did not give up and announces that it will treat the price, infact, seems quite sure to get a discount,lke he had do for the 90 F-35 jets fighter, Lockheed Martin in that case would make to the administration a discount of $ 600 million, which according to defense analysts is similar to that done to other countries.
