It may be necessary for the United States to request an extradition of the drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who was arrested in Mexico on Friday.
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has previously refused to extradite Guzman to the United States.
Now it may be necessary for the US to ask for him to be extradited again.
- I can confirm that it is common practice to request the extradition of people who have been charged in the United States when they are arrested in another country, said Peter Carr, spokesman for the US Justice Department, to CNN.
The Ministry emphasizes, however, that they will not speak specifically about Guzman.
The US Attorney Loretta Lynch praises the arrest of the drug lord.
- It is a victory for the citizens of Mexico and the United States, she said, and added that his crimes have led to violence, disorder and corruption on several continents.
