Mexico is strengthening security on its borders, at embassies, ports and airports amid threats from Islamic State radicals, the country’s National Security Commissioner Renato Sales Heredia announced.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Wednesday, ISIL released an online video threatening to carry out attacks against 60 countries, including Mexico, that are somehow contributing to an international fight against the group.

Sales stressed on Thursday that ISIL presents a major global and international threat and Mexico must take precautionary measures even though there is no particular terrorism threat in the country itself.

"We must take care of the vulnerability of our borders," Sales said as quoted by local media on Thursday, adding that security measures "at airports, seaports, embassies" must also be enhanced.

Mexico, the only Latin American country threatened by ISIL, was reportedly included in a September US government list of countries collaborating with a US-led coalition that has been carrying out airstrikes against ISIL in Syria.

Islamic State and its affiliates have claimed responsibility for several major terrorist acts, including a series of suicide bombings and shootings that took the lives of at least 130 people and injured over 350 others in Paris on November 13.
