Bush To Visit Mexico Next Month

January 22, 2001

WASHINGTON (AP) _ President Bush will travel to Mexico next month, his first trip abroad as president, the White House announced Monday.

Bush will travel to Mexico on Feb. 16, said White House spokesman Ari Fleischer. He will meet with President Vicente Fox and return to the United States later that day, Fleischer said.

Fox and Bush first met last August during a visit that then-President-elect Fox made to the United States after his election July 2. At that time, Bush promised to meet with Fox promptly.

Bush has limited experience traveling abroad. As governor of Texas, he made relations with Mexico a top issue.

Fleischer said the president has not yet scheduled further foreign travels.
