Mexican navy training ship to sail on 7-month cruise to 14 countries

Mexico City, Mar 21 (EFE).- The Mexican navy's training ship, Cuauhtemoc, has received authorization from the Senate to sail on a seven-month training cruise that will take it to 14 countries in the Americas and Europe, officials said. The "Europa 2013" mission is designed to deliver a message of peace and goodwill from Mexico, as well as to promote some of the country's states as cultural and tourism destinations, the Senate said in a statement. Under Mexican law, only the Senate can approve the deployment of armed forces members outside the country's borders.
