According to La Jornada national newspaper in Mexico, the two most powerful cartels in Mexico have reached a pact of non-aggression.

The paper reported that a deal was reached between Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes known as El Mencho, the leader of the Jalisco New Generation (CJNG), and the powerful Capo of the Sinaloa Cartel, Ismael El Mayo Zambada.

The pact between the two powerhouse syndicates is believed to be part of an effort to consolidate control of over their territories of operation. The two organized crime groups agreed not to encroach on each other’s turf in such places including Juárez, Chihuahua; Tijuana, Baja California, and San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora.

The CJNG is an off-shoot of the Sinaloa Cartel, santioned by El Chapo Guzman himself. However, the New Generation Cartel splintered off after the killing of Ignacio Coronel Villarreal, one of the top leaders of the Sinaloa cartel in 2010.

After breaking away from their Sinaloa brethren, Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes partnered with Los Ciuinis and their leader, the recently apprhended, Abigael Gonzalez Valencia.

In recent years, the partnership has seen the group become one of, if not the richest and most powerful cartels in Mexico. The relationship between the El Mencho and Valencia transcends just a business relationship since the two men are brother-in-laws.

The consolidated power structure of the CJNG and Los Ciunis separates them from the other cartels. The power within the organization remains tightly under the control of El Mencho and the Valencia families who choose not to have regional bosses as other cartels do. The strategy avoids factionalism and the internal strife of a power struggle as often seen with other cartels.

If reports are true of a pact between the Sinaloa and CJNG, it will allow both organizations to also share intelligence freely.

El Mencho is known to be a proficient strategist, who prefers to avoid conflict with other groups if possible. The CJNG are not competing for the king’s share of the US drug market. Since the Los Ciuinis have cornered the overseas market in Europe and the Asian markets, it has allowed Oseguera Cervantes to broker intelligent deals with rival organizations such as the Sinaloa.

Although such a pact could be beneficial for both groups, the two cartels could not be more different. The CJNG has taken the strategy of openly going to war with the state. Unlike the Sinaloa Cartel who have always avoided open conflict with government forces.

However, with the recent string of attacks on the state security forces by the cartel, it seems like “El Mencho” has to contend with a much bigger enemy, President Enrique Peña Nieto, who now has made taking down the CJNG it’s number one priorty.
