Meddling claim denied
MOSCOW: The Kremlin has dismissed a US allegation it was meddling in Mexican politics ahead of a presidential election there as unfounded.
Moscow was responding to comments made by US National Security Adviser HR McMaster in a video clip in which he said there were “initial signs” that Russia was interfering in the Mexican poll.
McMaster did not elaborate on how Russia was seeking to influence the July ballot when Mexico is due to elect a new president to succeed Enrique Pena Nieto.
Some analysts see frontrunner Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the leftist former mayor of Mexico City, as the Kremlin’s favourite.
