( – Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has warned the U.S. to avoid intervening in the country’s domestic issues after four Americans were kidnapped in the Mexican border city of Matamoros last week.

López Obrador has claimed that the incident was a result of a confrontation between groups and that the Mexican government would handle the case. They further added that it would be best if there was no foreign interference in the investigation.

On Tuesday it was announced that of the four kidnapped U.S. citizens, two were found dead, one was found unharmed and another was injured. Mexican officials have further announced that the two people retrieved had been returned to the U.S.

In his daily press conference, López Obrador stated that the Mexican authorities were fully cooperating with the American authorities, but that his government would not allow any “foreign country” to intervene in their country.

He added that they were also not trying to interfere with the U.S. investigation into the distribution of fentanyl through criminal gangs.

However, following last week’s kidnappings Republican lawmakers are pushing for the U.S. to take a more aggressive approach in how they handle cartels along the southern border, including those who are on the Mexican side of the border.

On Monday, Senator Lindsey Graham also announced that he was getting ready to introduce legislation that would help set the grounds for the U.S. military to potentially enter Mexico in order to handle the threats.
