While there, the governor toured a Sonora command and control security center, known as the C5i, and received a security update on the region. The governor also took part in meetings related to security and energy, as well as a plenary meeting of the summit, and recognized Arizona’s unique and productive relationship with Sonora in an address to attendees.


During the governor’s speech at the summit, he emphasized the importance of working together to address the violence along the border and create a better quality of life for residents of both states. The governor also led a moment of silence to recognize the nine American citizens killed in Sonora earlier this week.
