The parents of 43 missing students on Thursday held a two-hour meeting with Foreign Affairs Secretary Claudia Ruiz Massieu in which they agreed to a path forward with an investigation.

Vidulfo Rosales, a lawyer for the relatives of the students who disappeared in Iguala, Guerrero, told reporters that the meeting was “good and productive.”

“We agreed on defining a mechanism whose priorities will be the victims and the clarification of the facts,” Ruiz Massieu said via Twitter.

That mechanism will be defined later this month in Washington at a meeting between representatives of the parents and experts of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IAHCR) that investigated the case.

“We found several concordances between the federal government’s positions and the positions we want to present in front of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights,” Vudulfo Rosales said.

In addition, independent experts of the IACHR, who left Mexico last month after presenting their final report on the case, will make periodic visits to Mexico to ensure a special follow-up on the official investigation.
