The First Lady plans to take her first solo trip to Mexico, where she’ll spend time with Mexico’s First Lady Margarita Zavala de Calderon. The two women recently talked during a official visit to the White House on February 25, 2010. During the visit, the first ladies discussed obesity, diabetes, addictions and the situation of undocumented Mexican minors in the United States. They stressed the links between the United States and Mexico and pledged to work on those issues.

The East Wing of the White House released the following information:

“In recognition of the deep ties between the United States and Mexico, First Lady Michelle Obama will visit Mexico City, Mexico, April 13-15, on her first solo official trip as First Lady. Mrs. Obama’s international agenda will amplify the President’s commitment to advancing mutual interests, mutual respect and mutual responsibility between nations and peoples around the world. During this visit, Mrs. Obama will have the opportunity to engage the citizens of Mexico, particularly young people, and build on her recent conversation with Mexican First Lady Margarita Zavala de Calderon on the issues of education and economic advancement in both countries.”
