Governor of Mexico State Enrique Peña Nieto, in Israel as head of a Mexican government delegation, met Wednesday at his request with the team of ZAKA volunteers who assisted in the recovery mission at the site of the helicopter crash in Mexico City earlier this month in which Mexican businessman Moises Saba and family were killed.

The ZAKA delegation left Mexico for the Haiti quake disaster immediately after completing their work at the crash site, flying with the Mexican delegation to Port-au-Prince.

During the meeting, attended by the ZAKA International Rescue Unit head Mati Goldstein, the governor expressed his gratitude for the professionalism and dedication of the ZAKA volunteers.

He commented that members of the Mexican delegation to Haiti told him of the close cooperation with the ZAKA delegation on the ground, including in the rescue of several survivors from the collapsed university building. The governor added that he would investigate other areas of continued cooperation with ZAKA and promised to offer his support for the establishment of a ZAKA international rescue unit in Mexico.
