WASHINGTON — Mexican Foreign Secretary Bernardo Sepulveda will visit Washington on Monday to discuss with Secretary of State George P. Shultz the increasing tensions between the two countries over the murder of a drug enforcement agent.
State Department spokesman Edward Djerejian, who announced Friday that the meeting was scheduled, declined to spell out the subject of the talks. But he said, "I think you can assume that the subjects that have been in the news will certainly be on the agenda."
Another State Department official said later that the visit was decided upon last month when President Reagan spoke by telephone with President Miguel de la Madrid of Mexico shortly after Drug Enforcement Administration agent Enrique S. Camarena was kidnaped in Guadalajara. The official declined to say which president suggested the meeting.
The session could prove to be an acrimonious one. Shultz said Thursday that American patience had been exhausted by the failure of the Mexican government to crack down on drug dealers like the ones believed to have been responsible for kidnaping, beating and killing Camarena.
