The candidate for the Presidency of the Republic from PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party), Enrique Peña Nieto, thinks that the revelation that the DEA has been laundering money for Mexican cartels would jeopardize bilateral relations between Mexico and the United States.

"I think that the involvement of U.S. government agencies in our country, with (the) ignorance of government of Mexico, jeopardizes the cooperative relationship between our countries," he said in an interview with W Radio.The presidential aspirant said it would be even more serious if the Mexican authorities were colluding with the U.S. agency operations.

"I think there is an inconsistency in the means and the form, and if the federal government has not had knowledge of this, it would be more grave than it may have been, if it was discovered that the government was complicit with this" he said .
