I am deeply touched by the very warm hospi- tality and welcome that has been extended to me and my de- legation by Your Excellency and the wonderful people of Mexico City. I feel very privileged to be made a special guest of this great city and I thank Your Excellency for the great honour you have bestowed upon me. You are quite right in pointing out that both our coun- tries share many similarities. We must now build upon these shared characteristics to develop closer economic cooper- ation between our two countries. President Salinas and I have agreed to make this our common objective. We can all look forward therefore to a closer and mutually beneficial relationship. Once again, may I thank you for welcoming me to your great city and for honouring me in this very special way.
