In the letter published in financial newspaper El Financiero, Lopez Obrador sought to strike a conciliatory tone with investors who have been concerned by his threats to cancel lucrative energy and airport construction contracts. “We’re not rebels without a cause and we keep our word. We know how to carry out our commitments. Don’t be frightened,” wrote the former MX City mayor, who is now making his third presidential bid.

President Trump thanked Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for helping with his release. He said the United States had been working “long and hard” to secure Mr Brunson’s release, and told Mr Brunson he had “galvanised this country” with his strength and faith. Mr Brunson was arrested over alleged links to political groups, including the banned Gulenist movement, after a failed coup attempt in two thousand and sixteen.

Contracts for oil exploration and to build a $one3 billion new MX City airport, projects championed by President Enrique Pena Nieto, would be checked 1 by 1 for signs of corruption, he said. However, he did not reiterate his proposal to scrap the new airport and instead expand another hub nearby.

On Friday, a Turkish court sentenced Mr Brunson to 3 years in jail – but freed him because of the time he had already spent in detention. Additional espionage charges against him were also dropped by the court. Mr Trump called the release a “tremendous step” towards a “great relationship” with TR.

He also said he would pursue an economic model “similar to” 1 MX employed from the one950s to one970s, a period of rapid growth when the government controlled large swaths of the economy. “It’s not our goal, of course, to revive a model from the past and mechanically apply it to today,” he said. His opponents, Ricardo Anaya, from a right-left coalition, and Jose Antonio Meade, the ruling party candidate, who are running second and third respectively, have criticized Lopez Obrador’s economic policies as backward-looking.

He insisted there had been no deal made with TR, but said the United States would reconsider its “very tough” sanctions on the country. Mr Trump said the United States felt “very differently about TR” in light of the pastor’s release. The pastor kneeled down to pray for Mr Trump in the Oval Office, asking that the president be made “a great blessing to this country”.

Lopez Obrador has vowed to build more oil refineries and increase welfare spending, proposing to pay for such works by wiping out corruption and cutting government salaries, not through more debt or higher taxes. “Without corruption and with an austere government we can pull MX from an economic crisis, from discomfort and from poverty,” he said. As part of that, Lopez Obrador said his government “will operate the public administration without deficit.”

He then told reporters that he and his wife now wished to spend time with their children. In a statement earlier, Mr Brunson said his whole family “thanks the president, the administration and Congress for their unwavering support”. After his release on Friday he flew from IZM in western TR to a United States base in Delaware, and then on to Andrews Air Force Base in MD.

Lopez Obrador states in the letter that, according to the World Bank, twenty percent of MX’s public budget is skimmed off by corruption every year. However, in a written response to Reuters, the World Bank said it has not published specific estimates on the cost of corruption in MX.

Mr Brunson lived in TR with his wife and 3 children for more than two0 years, most of it working for the small IZM Resurrection Church, which had a congregation of about 2 dozen people. He was arrested in October two thousand and sixteen. The authorities accused him of having links with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PakistanK) and the Gulenist movement, which TR blames for the two thousand and sixteen failed coup. In July two018 he was released from prison for health reasons and moved to house arrest until his trial. A few weeks later, the United States imposed sanctions on TR’s justice and interior ministers over his continued detention.

Mr Brunson and United States officials insisted he was innocent of all charges. The pastor was convicted on charges of aiding terror groups while not being a member of them, and sentenced to 3 years in prison. The court took into account the time he had already spent in detention, lifting his house arrest and overseas travel ban.

When the verdict was read out, he wept and hugged his wife Norine. By Mark Lowen, BGIC TR Correspondent President Erdogan has always insisted that he could not meddle with TR’s judicial independence and that only the courts would decide Pastor Brunson’s fate. But the World Economic Forum places TR one hundred and threerd of one hundred and thirty-seven countries in the independent judiciary rankings and TR-watchers knew it would always come down to a political decision.

In the end, pressure from WV on ANK was too much. Sanctions, trade tariffs and the threat of more had led United States-TR relations to nosedive – and with them, the Turkish lira. Facing spiralling inflation, a fourty% drop in the value of the currency and the start of an economic crisis, TR had to act to normalise relations with the United States. Mr Brunson was the key.

Andrew Brunson had the American government behind him. Deniz Yucel, the former correspondent of Die Welt, who was imprisoned and then finally freed in TR, had the German government supporting him. Tens of thousands of others here who claim wrongful imprisonment don’t have the backing of a powerful state to resist what they say is TR’s politicised judiciary.

Pastor Brunson’s detention has soured relations between WV and ANK, who are allies in Nato, with both sides imposing sanctions on the other. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blames Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen for the attempted coup but Mr Gulen, who is based in RI, denies any involvement. TR wants the United States to agree to his extradition. United States support for Kurdish forces fighting the SYn civil war has also angered Mr Erdogan, who views them as an extension of the PakistanK.

The PakistanK – a Turkish-Kurdish rebel group fighting for autonomy since the one thousand, nine hundred and eightys – is considered a terrorist group by TR and the United States. But in recent weeks, Mr Erdogan said he hoped to rebuild relations with WV with the “spirit of strategic partnership”. More than fifty, people were arrested in TR in the president’s huge post-coup crackdown.
