Today, Mexican Attorney General Jorge Madrazo began a three-day working visit to Washington, D.C. His schedule includes meetings with his counterpart, Janet Reno, as well as with other high-ranking officials from the Department of Justice. 
Attorney General Madrazo is also scheduling working meetings with General Barry McCaffrey, Director General of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, with Louis Free, Director of the FBI, and with DEA Administrator, Donnie Marshall. Attorney General Madrazo also envisages a series of encounters and interviews with Washington-based U.S. print and electronic media, as well as with Mexican correspondents here, as part of his working visit schedule. During his stay in the U.S. capital, Attorney General Madrazo has underscored ongoing law enforcement cooperation between Mexico and the United States, especially regarding our common fight against drug trafficking. ''Assistance provided by the FBI in the investigation the Attorney General's Office is conducting in Ciudad Juarez, is the most recent example of our strong bi-national cooperation,'' Madrazo declared. He also stressed Mexico's contribution to recent U.S. and multi-national successful operations such as ''Southwest'', ''Impunity'' and ''Millennium.'' During his visit, Attorney General Madrazo will also further discuss with U.S. officials the law enforcement components of the Agenda 2000 initiative. This proposal, announced last Nov. 10 by the Government of Mexico during the plenary meeting of the High Level Contact Group for Drug Control, seeks to strengthen Mexico-U.S. cooperation in the entire array of the bilateral relationship in the upcoming year.
