Mexico foreign ministry to speak with U.S. to end avocado conflict, president says

US suspends avocado inspections in Michoacan state on security concerns

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Wednesday that he would ask the country's foreign minister to speak with the U.S. ambassador to the country to restart U.S. imports of Mexican avocados.

The U.S. suspended inspections of avocados last week due to a safety incident in the Mexican state of Michoacan, effectively halting the flow of avocados into the country.
