Clinton strikes co-responsibility theme; Pascual tipped as Ambassador

The two day visit of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saw both sides emphasize the theme of co-responsibility. Columnist Jaime Sánchez said, “Clinton surprised every camp … Nobody expected such a turn.” The press reported that the U.S. proposed Carlos Pascual to be Ambassador. Pascual, a Cuban-American, is the head of foreign policy at Brookings, and former Ambassador to Ukraine. The Templo Mayor column observed, “What also stands out in the CV of the next ambassador is that he has been dedicated to the study of ‘failed states’ among which, at least ‘til now, he has never included Mexico.” (Reforma 3/27-28, Universal 3/28)
