Attorney General Mark Brnovich says it was an "honor and privilege" to attend the annual Conferencia Nacional de Procuración de Justicia, an annual attorneys general conference in Mexico. 

While there, Brnovich got to meet President Enrique "El Chapo Escapes from Maximum Security Prison While I Conveniently Am in France" Peña Nieto and Mexico's federal Attorney General Arely Gómez González. The focus of the talks was the continuous work to combat drug and human trafficking on both sides of the border, a press release from Brnovich's office says. 

Brnovich and Gómez discussed the "importance of collaboration between the U.S. and Mexico."

"They both agreed it is essential to build relationships and open lines of communication between state and federal attorneys general on issues of mutual concern," the release says.

(This is comical) Peña Nieto and Gómez González spoke about the importance of fighting corruption in Mexico and the implementation of the 2016 judicial reforms

From the release:
Brnovich attended the conference as part of the Conference of Western Attorneys General Alliance Partnership. The partnership helps establish and nurture cross-jurisdictional cooperation between the U.S. and Mexico on many law enforcement issues, from consumer fraud to drug trafficking and money laundering. CWAG's Alliance Partnership organizes bi-national exchanges and workshops with the National Associated of Attorneys General, Mexico’s Federal Attorney General’s Office, Mexico’s National Conference of Attorneys General, and Mexico state attorneys general.
This was Brnovich's second trip Mexico. In the past, he's met with state attorneys general from Sonora, Baja California and Guanajuato.

In, apparently, less valuable news, not worthy of discussing at the conference, El Chapo is still on the loose and the 43 students from Ayotzinapa are still missing.
