Peña Nieto on the US

Enrique Peña Nieto had the following comment on the US diplomatic visit to Mexico:
I believe that the climate requires that in the framework of this visit we again revise the schemes of institutional collaboration that there could be between both governments, which will allow us to really spark policies and above all a more effective strategy in the combat of insecurity.
That doesn't really mean a whole lot to me, but he did say that US collaboration was "welcome" at one point. Since Peña Nieto is something of an open book on a lot of the biggest national issues facing Mexico, and since he's more likely than anyone to be the president from 2012 to 2018, comments like this are perhaps indicative of the philosophies that will be leading it for six of the next eight years. Or maybe he'll just change his mind in a few months.
