Mr. Speaker, as soon as we were informed of the problems in Chiapas, we sent a note of protest to the Mexican government. If you read the notes that came from Mexico, you would see that we were one of the first countries to do so and one of the countries that protested most vigorously.
Nevertheless, we believe that it is normal to have trading relations with Mexico. I am surprised to hear the Leader of the Opposition say we should not have trading relations with Mexico and China because we do not like the way they govern their countries.
We have always had trading relations, and it would be hypocrisy to claim that we can cut off our trading relations with countries with whom we disagree on the issue of human rights. We have always traded with China, the Soviet Union and Mexico. We intend to continue and to raise the issue of fundamental freedoms at the same time.
