Presidential candidate Mitt Romney made some rare statements on Mexico's drug war, during a forum with the Univision TV Network on Wednesday, echoing the policy that's been held by the Obama administration.

The Republican candidate, who has seldom addressed drug policy during his campaign, conceded that the U.S. is partly responsible for drug violence in Mexico, adding that in order to alleviate the situation in that country, the U.S. must focus on reducing the demand for drugs in the United States.

These comments were made towards the middle of the forum, after Univision anchor Maria Elena Salinas presented Romney with a question sent by someone who was watching the event on Facebook.
