Air Force Gen. Lori Robinson, commander of the U.S. Northern Command, has said the U.S. military looks for ways to increase collaboration with partners in Mexico and other Central American countries to address security issues in the region, DoD News reported Tuesday.
Lisa Ferdinando writes Robinson told audience at the Central America Security Conference held Tuesday in Mexico that transnational organized crime and migration are among security issues facing the region.
She noted that Northcom works with the U.S. Southern Command and Mexico to address such security challenges.
“I appreciated hearing a collective willingness to work together for stronger partnerships in the region,” added Robinson, who also heads the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
The U.S. co-hosted the two-day conference with Mexico in an effort to provide a venue for government officials to facilitate collaboration to counter multidomain threats to Central America’s regional stability, the report added.
