Among the first measures was the resumption of the coordination mechanism for the repatriation of Venezuelan nationals, with two test flights between yesterday and today, 29 and 30 December.

Both countries are working to implement social programs in Venezuela, in particular linking returnees with productive projects and paid work internships, based on the Mexican models of Sembrando Vida and Jóvenes Construyendo el Futuro and linked to the Venezuelan program Vuelta a la Patria.

Mexico and Venezuela reiterate their commitment to address the structural causes that generate irregular migration in the region. Also, to achieve humanitarian management of such flows, in order to move towards safe, orderly and regular migration, with full respect for human rights.

Mexican Foreign Minister Alicia Bárcena said Saturday night on her X account, that Mexico and Venezuela "strengthen migration cooperation" with the restart of the "assisted return" flight mechanism of migrants, and reiterate the commitments agreed at the summit held in October in the Mexican city of Palenque to achieve a "humanitarian management" of migratory flows.

In a special air operation of the government program Plan Vuelta a la Patria, a total of 207 Venezuelans arrived this Saturday as returnees from Mexico. This is due to the migratory pacts reached between the governments of both nations.
