«Mexico has the possibility and also the will to sell electricity to Guatemala, as well as to Belize. We are all going through problems of energy shortages because of the drought that we are facing throughout the world, the truth, and in our countries it is no exception,» Bárcena said.

The president said on May 8 that, regardless of the blackouts, the nation has «power generation capacity. It was something exceptional that was not expected. We have to avoid it».
