The American Embassy in Mexico City was established in 1964. At the time of the embassy's opening, it was the largest United States embassy in the world. The building's address is Paseo de la Reforma 305, Mexico City, Mexico.
The United States first recognized Mexico as an independent nation in 1822. The United States and Mexico share borders, so a close relationship with each other is vital to the stability of North America. The embassy serves to assist the Mexican government in solving difficult problems afflicting the nation both economically and criminally. The United States Ambassador to Mexico is Earl Anthony Wayne, as of 2015.
