Yanis Varoufakis pays an official visit to Mexico

On Tuesday, he will meet with president Andrés Manuel López Obrador to discuss ideas on a New Non-Aligned Movement as well as Julian Assange

Yanis Varoufakis is currently on an official visit to Mexico, having arrived on Sunday afternoon after his trip to Cuba where he took part in meetings and give speeches as part of the push to create a New Non-Aligned Movement.

The co-founder of DiEM25 will meet the president of Mexico, Andres Manuel López Obrador, on Tuesday, January 31, at 10:30 local time at the Presidential Palace upon an official invitation. During this meeting, the pair will discuss ideas on a New Non-Aligned Movement as well as Julian Assange, for whom the Mexican president has made efforts for his release.

After his official visit to Mexico, Varoufakis will return to Athens, although similar meetings are planned with the presidents of Chile and Colombia after the Greek elections, with this New Non-Aligned Movement being a major area of focus for MeRA25, DiEM25 and the Progressive International.

This new Non-Aligned Movement aims to shape the modern world as a response to the ongoing war in Ukraine and the New Cold War that is forming.

It was a topic on which Varoufakis gave an extensive speech during his visit to Cuba, at the Havana Congress for a New International Economic Order.

“It is the establishment of a New Non-Aligned Movement (NNAM) with which to break down the existing, exploitative, catastrophically extractive imperialist international economic order so as to build a new one in its place – a New International Economic Order (NIEO) in which people and planet can breathe, live and prosper together,” Varoufakis stated.
